Thunderbird password-storage-file (encryption)
morph - November 23, 2006 - 12:16pm
can please somebody tell me where thunderbird stores the account-passwords?
I'm asking this in association with the encryption-topic. Namely I intend to encrypt only those files where my passwords are, cause my USB-Stick is not the fastest and encrypting/decrypting the whole profile-folder takes nearly a minute. I plan to use (somehow) EncryptOnClick with only one batch-file, which makes it encrypt/decrypt only these files in both GAIM's and Thunderbird's profile-folder (and perhaps my address book).
What do you think about this solution? OK, IF someone gets my stick he will still be able to read some email-headers, but this is not that bad (at least for me).
P.S.: It wonders me that GAIM stores passwords simply in settings\.gaim\accounts.xml just next to the account-name in a " <\password>"-tag!
edit: I mean "password"-tag
