Emailer password problem: Claris confirms an update is planned and suggests a work-around

Regarding our item last time about a password security leak in Claris Emailer 2.0, David Mollerstuen (Technical Lead for Claris Emailer) replies:

"We're aware of the problem, and have fixed it in an upcoming revision (we hope to release the revision within the next two months). For our truly security conscious patrons, one possible work around is to delete the password from the Account Entry screen; Emailer will prompt for a password the first time you attempt to retrieve mail from the POP account, and then cache the password until the application is terminated."
