    Hide annoying pop-up error messages?
    Hey Everybody!

    I have an odd question. I'm running snow leopard (10.6.7 specifically) and I keep getting this annoying error message popping up from iCal. It doesn't effect functionality at all but it does ruin my productivity to have it popping up every hour or so. Message reads "The server did not recognize your user name or password for account Make sure you enter them correctly." Is there a way to hide the pop-up permanently or just auto OK it with bit of terminal or something? I've tried for a week to troubleshoot to no avail! Any help, ideas or consolation would extremely appreciated!

    Thanks so much,

    It's probably doing this because you've (at some point) set up CalDAV to sync iCal with Google Calendar. Go to iCal > Preferences > Accounts and make sure the password is right for your Google account.

    What's weird is that the password and server path are correct. I even cut off the "/" at the end like some of the threads suggested. The calendar updates and syncs just fine so the functionality is unaffected. The pop up is just really annoying. Weird right?

    The best thing to do in these kinds of situations is to remove the settings, reboot and re enter your password from scratch.
