It is set to t, and it always prompt two times for passphrase.

One problem also is that passphrase is required for things that doesn't
need it:
For example with gnus i am prompt for passphrase when i start gnus to
read my mails but i use fetchmail to retrieve my mails. No password is
set in gnus to contact pop service.
Is it possible to write in authinfo a pop entry with a dummy password or
a password set to nil?
