Where does Eudora put its passwords?

    In eudora.ini there are two places saying
    SavePasswordText=XXXXXXXXX

    But they don't change when I change my password.
    It accepts my old password and the new password, but the new password
    doesn't take effect.

    I can go round and round in circles and it accepts the old password
    each time.

    When does it write eudora.ini to disk? Surely immediately the password
    is changed.

    Yes I've just found that suggestion elsewhere.
    Why ever would Eudora have a function to change the password that
    doesn't work?
