This is extremely difficult to do in a secure way. What you need to do
is encrypt the e-mail password before storage; each time the user starts
the e-mail application, zie needs to enter the local password. There are
other less secure options, all of which (with some partial exceptions)
equate to "no security" from the perspective of a security professional.
(E.g. relying on the OS to keep the data secure.)

Python does not make encryption available in its "batteries included"
philosophy because of the legal problems. M2Crypto is probably the
module most often used; see also

ok, thank you all.

curiosity: what is "zie" intended to mean? It is maybe slang for he/she ?

Ciao,
Riccardo
