Lately I've been getting queried for my email password even though I always check the box to keep it on my keychain. Is there a permanent method to store a password that I'm missing?

I have two (2) comcast email addresses on this machine. That's it other than the occasional gmail, and while I have dot mac setup, I don't really use that email.
