Hi -

Following up to an exchange I had almost two years ago:

I attach a simple patch that does this. I tested it with emacs 22.1.

The patch also applies against the latest CVS (MAIN/HEAD) version
1.97, except that "password-cache" should be autoloaded instead of
"password" for recent development emacsen.

As a password key I simply reuse the prompt, as it appears to contain
just the right information.

The current version of smtpmail.el does not remember the password if
.authinfo is used. I removed this condition because it prevents
password caching for people who do not store passwords in .authinfo,
and I do not see any harm caused by removing it.

Could you test and apply the patch?
