Response to: A flaw in the keychain process?

Did you try to set : "Ask for Keychain password" in addition to "Confirm before allowing access"


What happens in what you describe is that Mail *knows* it is still you at the computer so it has no reason to ask again to decrypt unless - I suspect - you set the keychain to ask for the password each time. (that should cover your point 4)


As a measure of security you should lock the keychain again if you leave the computer unattended (if that was ultimately your concern)
