I think you want to `M-x customize-group password'

Specifically, `password-cache' and `password-cache-expiry'

This is, I believe, what's used by smtpmail.el if it can't get the
password from auth-source.  I encourage you to use auth-source instead,
though.  You'd be storing the password in a PGP-encrypted file and you
can use the same file for IMAP, POP3, NNTP, etc. passwords.
