    Default To remember me or not to remember me...

    Is it me or does the "Remember me on this computer" checkbox not work? i get the login screen everytime even when that is checked.

    I'm running Zimbramail 3.1.2_GA_445 on a Fedora Core 4 system. With Firefox 1.5.0.4. Everything else seems to work.

    Depends on how long you have your auth token set for. If your auth token expired then you'll be prompted to login.

    I did discover (through playing) that if login then close the browser window then it does seem to work. BUT normal behaviour for most systems is for the checkbox to mean that it will save the username and/or password so that every visit to the page it will login, even if you logout in the previous session. Anyway to change that behaviour?

    You can extend the length of you auth tokens in the admin UI. This of course reduces the secureness since sessions will be much longer lived. Most common web email programs like gmail, yahoo, etc all force you to re-enter your password at some interval. Zimbra works the same way but we just error by default on the secure side and remember the auth for a shorter time.

    I don't understand why we don't have this feature working.
    You said that this was a auth token life time problem, and that Gmail is working the same way, but using ZWC and Gmail, I can tell you that only Gmail can remember my login name, not ZWC ... why ???

    It's "normal" (at the security sense) that password isn't remembered by default, but can you get us the way to force remember login name and password ???

    As Zimbra is used only by our staff, as we give them only HTTPS access, as we don't let access from outside but the powerusers, I don't know why our users couldn't use this feature ... at least in order to simplify their life until we find a solution to SSOing their ids !!!

    Any solution required ... please !

    Regards.
