Issues related to applications and software problems

I'm trying to setup evolution email. I entered my emails and asked for it to remember my password. It prompts for the email password followed by prompting for the default keyring password. I tried the login password and the su password, but it won't accept it. I tried seahorse and I see "login", but no "default keyring". Can anybody help me?
By chance, is the user setup to "auto-login"? While very convenient, auto-login causes issues with the keyring on my girl-friends machine.
Remember - importing/building packages will likely "byte you in the butt" come update time, long after you'd forgotten you did that! Use repos whenever possible.
Thanks for your reply lightman47. I don't have "auto-login". I read that suspend may also cause a problem, so I booted the machine and tried evolution again. Same problem. I don't know what the default keyring password could be, since it will not accept the login password or the su password and I never entered a password in the first place.
