A few months ago I downloaded and installed the "official" Gmail Notifier for Mac. It works well enough, however every single time I reboot the machine, it "forgets" my password, even though I keep checking the box to store it in the password keychain.

I finally annoyed with having to enter my password over and over, so I downloaded (and purchased) Notify 2 (Notify 2 – An awesome email notifier for Mac OS X. – Vibealicious) and installed that. Again, this works just great, and I love the app, but...

Every time I reboot, it forgets my password.

This is becoming a pattern now, so I'm wondering if there is something about the password keychain that I need to tweak or fix somehow? Or do you think some else is causing it?

I'm completely confused, and could use any help you could offer please.

Perhaps the Keychain needs repairing.

Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
