I guess I experienced the same when I migrated a Seamonkey 1.1.x profile

that file everything was fine and even the imported passwords were
Hope that helps
Wish I had known that earlier. I actually did a master password reset,
then re-entered all my passwords one at a time. Only had about 15-20
that I still use so not a huge operation. Thanks.
For others; you don't have to do either of the above.
I'm sorry but for now this is wrong. In fact when this problem comes up
for people who had not used a master-password in SM1, they /do/ need to
I didn't have a Master-Password either.
I started SM2 after migrating for the first time and it asked for a
master-password right away (I guess because it tries to check for mail
already in SM2 without having to open the mail-window, by default)
So migrating from SM1.1.17 to SM2.0b1 caused a master password prompt
right from the start for me, before doing anything else.
