  Have you tried to just restart Sylpheed after editing the correct
password in the account?
  I'm asking because Sylpheed tends to save somewhere (on the session
basis, I guess) the entered passwords even if they are incorrect. And I
do not see a way to re-enter the password without restarting Sylpheed.
I don't know why is this happening, because it is very inconvenient,
but I'm not a programmer and I cannot check the source code out to
figure it out from there.
