SMTP password is visible

On the "FogBUGZ Configuration" screen, the data in the "SMTP Password:" field is visible. I would expect it to be replaced by '*' characters.

We're a distributed team, don't have our own mail server ... so we're each connected to the Internet via an ISP ... so I enter my personal email account name/password so that it can connect to my ISP's mail server ... now my personal email name and password are visible to other FogBUGZ Administrators.

We'll change this in a future release.  Partly it wasn't set to be a password field before because it needs to be stored somewhere in cleartext anyway (in the registry in this case), but I understand your concern.

You can change the source to make it a password field.
