iPhone 5 mail keeps asking me for my iCloud password

Ever since I've put all of my necessary email accounts (2 gmail, 1 exchange, and my iCloud address) on my iPhone 5, it continuously ask for my iCloud password every time I open the mail app. Even if I enter my password, it will continue to ask for it. I've tried signing out and deleting my accounts and putting them back on.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Have you put in the password under Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> YourAccount?

If you keep entering it when you open mail, it apparently doesn't save it
I believe you have to put it in under the Settings

Yes,

I just re-entered my password just in case but it still pops up with my password missing.

If you don't want to use iCloud for emails, go to Settings > iCloud and toggle the Mail setting to OFF.

Please post if this fixes it.

I do happen to use my @me.com address for some emails. Turning it off did stop the problem, but I would prefer it on. I did find out when I turned it on it lists 2 iCloud account under my email accounts. Maybe that's a problem.

Since I don't use iCloud for anything but Find My iPhone, you'll need expertise for this from someone else.

I had that problem recently, when I restored my 4s. It was very annoying. If I am not mistaken, I had created a different password with my @me account. After I changed the password to match my main account, the password was finally accepted. I don't remember having that problem before when I did a restore, but for whatever reason, this last time didn't go smoothly.
