During connection to an IMAP server using nnimap, with no
~/.authinfo.gpg file present, function auth-source-create [1] asks for
login and password, then suggests asks the user if it should save those
credentials to ~/.authinfo.gpg

[1] : http://git.gnus.org/cgit/gnus.git/tree/lisp/auth-source.el

If the user answers no, this choice is not remembered. The preference is
not configurable. A user that wants to manually enter login information
at nnimap startup therefore has to refuse credentials storage every
time.

A way to bypass that confirmation would be a nice usability
improvement.
