    Thumbs up Apple Keychain First Aid
    This is a really kewl little program from Apple that has helped me numerous times when my keychain became corrupted.. it seems to work perfectly! I just though I would share it with you guys incase you didn't know about it

    The Keychain First Aid utility enables you to verify or repair your keychain content. It can fix:
    A user's .Mac password is not retained in Internet preference pane, as described in technical document 107097, "Mac OS X 10.2: Won't Save .Mac Password".
    Mail and iChat could continue to prompt users for their password after saving it in the keychain.
    A user could be unexpectedly prompted to unlock the keychain after changing account information or Home directory location.
    Duplicate Mail passwords could appear in the keychain, as described in technical document 106546, "Mac OS X 10.1: Re-enter Mail Password After Upgrade".
    Multiple references to the same keychain could appear in the Keychain Access application.
    Applications are unable to retrieve items from a keychain file located on a network volume.
    Saved passwords could not be read if they were created or modified by certain pre-release versions of Jaguar.
    A Keychain dialog can sometimes prompt for permission to decrypt a "(null)" item.

    I've used it once and it did work great. It's a nice utility that I think Apple should just bundle with the OS really....

    Yeah this is a really really old thread and it's actually built into the keychain program now.
