Mail keeps asking me for my passwords! I have run the First Aid option in Key Chain, but it shows there is no problems.

I have also followed the advice on the Apple web site, but it keeps happening!

I'm using Mail 2.1.1, Key Chain 3.3.2 and OS 10.4.9.

Any ideas, ????? Please help, it's driving me mad!

I've got the same problem going on anybody got any ideas on how to resolve it? I enter my password for all four of my email clients in the mail app. click the box to remember in key chain. I then close the app and reopen it only to have it ask me again, and then again and then again. I'm going nuts. HELP?!?

That was my second thing I tried. My 1st was going to Key Chain and doing verify and repair.

Wa-lah! I had to go back to Key Chain Access(in Utilities folder) go to file and create a new key chain. Then I named it "Login" Shazzam all of a sudden there were 121 items in it including all my adium and mail app. passwords. I'm back to normal. I'm guessing I must've fried the "Login" Key Chain some how. Just make a new one and name it "Login" it worked for me. If you get into the access and you already have a keychain named "Login" then you can go back too bangin your head against the wall. Good luck.
