Security Risk in Sylpheed !

Sylpheed is really a very good email client, but the passwords of the mailboxes are unfortunately stored unencrypted in a text file (accountrc, accountrc.bak, ...).

This is a big security risk!

Is there a setting that stores encrypted passwords? If not, I think it's better to use another email client!

You'd have to address that question to the publisher of Sylpheed. We just package it portably.

If you're carrying it on a flash drive, you could use a hardware encrypted drive like the Carbide.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
