Just getting started with KeePass. Need to know if I should be using my existing password for the entry when setting up a new entry in the Add Entry input box or should I just let the generated password populate the data field. If I use the generated password, it doesn't seem logical that KeePass will be able to open the account?

The answer does not seem to appear in any of the Help information.

    If you are adding an entry for a site you already visit you will need to enter the password you use for that site in the KeePass entry.
    Auto generated passwords are only for new sites or changing your password.

    cheers, Paul

    p.s. please use the discussion forums.
