    <mailbox type="gmail" username="*******" password="*******"/>

    as you see is a normal xml file wish shows clearly the password !!!!!

    Author does not view it as a bug https://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/?fu...&item_id=18893 so it isn't going to get "fixed".

    Yes it's not a bug, it's a missing feature , well Linux should be always secure, gnome-keyring can be used in this !
