There are certain aspects of kmail that I am beginning to dislike a lot. I=
have got to find a mailer that absolutely will never cache a passphrase=20
without having to go back to the dark ages (non-gui). :-( The odd thing is=
that I do not recall a case of having any email go our without entering a=20
passphrase before I installed the plugin.
