    I've had my mac about a month now, and I use Mail exclusively. Suddenly, over the past few days, I've been getting this pop up screen which is entitled, "Confirm Access to Keychain."

    The message asks "mail wants permission to decrypt smtp.mac.com in keychain fjs."

    It asks to either Deny, Allow once, or Allow Always.

    What's this and what is the recommended answer???

    Thanks

    Allow always... This will stop the message from appearing most of the time.

    Did you possibly install some system software update recently? In my experience, this resets some keychain stuff.

    I wonder if it was some upgrade that I let install?? No matter, I guess, everything works ok..

    Thanks.

    From Mac OS Help:
    You can run the Keychain Access application (in the Utilities folder) to see and set your keychain options, including the timeout time.
