I would not like the generalization: the mail client "evolution" does so
and this causes a big problem:

_ Periodically, W$ domain requests you to change your password.
_ The next time you start evolution (configured to identify in the M$
domain), it tries every possible method with the old password, before
resigning, resulting in locking your account by having too many attempts
with a wrong password :-((
