[QUOTE]\nI feel the same way, especially about the password. Since I can be too\nhasty at times, I have not stored the SMTP password in Mail on my iMac\nwith Snow Leopard. That prompt is one more chance to cancel sending, and\nmore foolproof because of the time it takes to type. :-) I'd like to keep\nmy new MBA with Mavericks from remembering my password, but have been\nunsuccessful so far. It always remembers what I type in.[/QUOTE]\n\nIf you "log off" your MBA or force account login password after \nscreensaver or sleep, then the pw is nice and safe in the keychain.
