Emailer &quot;security leak&quot; reveals password

There is a "security leak" in Claris Emailer 2.x. When you enter an email password in the Account window, it only shows bullet symbols rather than the actual password. As a security measure, Emailer will not let you copy the password to the Clipboard. However, if you simply select the password text and drag it to the desktop, a clippings file appears with your password revealed.(Thanks, Igor Schlumberger.)
