Update E-mail password via the command line

is there a way to edit the passwords for incoming and outgoing E-mail accounts, via the command line?

The GUI seems not to work: there is no obvious way to save edits in an existing E-mail account. And I don't want to reload manually thousands of past messages.

Thank you

You don't need to explicitly save changed settings. Settings are automatically saved when returning from server settings to the account view.

I tried that already, before posting. It did not work. I will retry. Obviously, this is not good UX.

it's working as this in every Sailfish App. Sailfish does not use Save Buttons. But! The E-Mail Password Settings are in fact buggy/not working correctly.. it just does not update the password as it should do.
