            Bug ID: 3807
           Summary: Decrypting AES encrypted passwords (for backups),
                    configure password store
    Classification: Unclassified

"The 3.14.0 release implements a completely new password storage backend."

Though I did not find a description in the manual for it (searching for
password). Origin is a problem about a forgotten password and I have GPG
installed/compiled according to the manual.
In ~/.claws-mail/passwordstorerc the password should be saved though mine seems
to be recv {AES-256-CBC,50000}LONG_AES_KEY...

I guess this is GPG dependent, since a GPG key is used with this account.
How does the decription work? Can I do this manually as well?

I cannot configure the email accounts to not encrypt the passwords.
Is this behavior intendend? A notion/hint would be great.
