Using KDE Plasma and kwallet6, I get very bizarre errors from DBus like the following:

Failed to call method: org.kde.KWallet.isEnabled: object_path= /modules/kwalletd: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name is not activatable

For some reason, switching to the mailspring-bin package and adding --password-store=gnome-libsecret fixes the issue. I still get the same error with --password-store=gnome-libsecret on this package.

Maybe it works better because they seem to use a different versions of electron?

For those having issues since the KDE 6 update, the easiest solution is to add the --password-store=kwallet5 argument. There is no other reasonable solution until a fix is released upstream, and it can't be added to the package because then it would fail on other DEs.

@mandeepsan you don't have to use comments as a changelog. Who have enabled notifications will already receive one for every commit

--password-store="gnome-libsecret",if you are running on hyprland or other no gnome, you should install "libgnome-keyring" to store your passwd. 添加 --password-store="gnome-libsecret"参数,但是运行在hyprland等非gnome桌面环境,需要安装libgnome-keyring保存密码。

OK I finally get it and have this working. Sounds like for now on i3 and sway the password-store needs to be forced for the forseeable future, and changing the Exec in /usr/share/applications/Mailspring.desktop in the [Desktop Entry] section (not the NewMessage) section) to "mailspring --password-store="gnome-libsecret" %U" does work.

Please refer to:

Mailspring 1.13 now runs on Electron 22, completing a migration process we started in 1.12.0!

If you are upgrading from an old version of Mailspring, download and run 1.12.0 first before installing this version. We've moved from keytar to Electron's safeStorage API for securely storing your email passwords, and version 1.12.0 will perform a migration ensuring your passwords are transitioned.

Recent upgrade and my accounts don't work, when I try to re-authorize I get "Password could not be stored securely" message. Seems to be an electron issue being faced by multiple packages and builds in different ecosystems at the moment.

Console says:

Error: Could not call remote method 'encryptString'. Check that the method signature is correct. Underlying error: Error: Error while decrypting the ciphertext provided to safeStorage.decryptString. Encryption is not available.Underlying stack: Error: Error while decrypting the ciphertext provided to safeStorage.decryptString. Encryption is not available.
