When I was setting up my email accounts, I had to manually type in passwords that were saved in my password manager app LastPass. Most of my passwords are long combinations of upper/lower case, numbers and special characters - painful to type out.

Thanks for the post.
My apologies but in BlackBerry 10 you can not paste any passwords. Let me know if you have any more questions.

I can remember about 5 of my 156 passwords. That's why I use a password manager. Most of my passwords are between 12 and 25 characters and are totally random. It would be nice to use my password manager to paste those into password fields when I setup email accounts or change email account passwords.
If the concern is security, then I don't get it.
I'm not going to be memorizing my seven 12-25 random character strings for my email accounts and typing them into the password fields on my Z10. I'm going to be looking at it on my computer screen, or looking at it in an email or looking at it in my password manager. Any of those options exposes the password. If I use my password manager, I cut and paste and the password is never exposed - I think that is more secure.
I was so annoyed typing in the passwords over and over again to get my email and calendar to work properly, I almost returned the Z10. That's how frustrating I find this issue !
