Can anyone please tell me why my password keeps being rejected, when i try to log in to MAC mail. I have tried countless times, i have even tried changing my password several times, but it still says macmail does not recognize my password.

This is driving me made, as surely it must find a password it likes at some point.

I am obviously doing something wrong, but i don't know what.

HELP please. Thank you
QUOTE Thanks

you havent really posted any helpful info that would help us help you.

what email system are you using? gmail, yahoo, .mac? what?

what are your settings inside mail?

was it working before with these settings?

without more info, no one can help you. You say you're entering the right password, so what advice could we give ?

did someone change your password?

have you bought a .mac account? or were yu on the 60 day trial....because i was & my trial ran out a couple of weeks back so it started rejecting my password...which is ok...because i knew it would so i never gave that id to anyone...
apart from this...if you have a valid account...go to the .mac site & ask to change your will need to remember the answer to the security question for this...

<< i can explain it to you...but i can't understand it for you... >>
