So I have been using my MacBook Pro for quite a while now and I love it but one thing that has began to get on my nerves is that MacMail seems to lose passwords. I manage 16 different emails so you can imagine, constantly having to renter my passwords is quite an inconvenience. I always keep mac mail open so it constantly refreshes, some of the times it does it just fine but some times I will be working on a website or something and then I see the mail icon start bouncing.

I click to see what it wants and it seems that it has forgotten my passwords of some accounts. I have checked the preferences in mail to renter all my passwords to make sure they were saved and they were correct. But it seems that I cannot make it stop asking me for my password! I have set it to remember my password for the keychain but it doesn't seem to want to do it!

Help? :(
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)

The Keychain can become corrupt. Not visibly but has wonky behavior. Keychain First Aid is the first step.
