    anyone know why ML Mail keeps asking for password ? some days its works fine but lately it keeps asking for password. I did not have this problem in Snow Leopard.

    What mail service provider do you use? I have that problem too with Yahoo!, but then again, I also had it with Sparrow and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.

    Yahoo changed the password security. A lot of users have report in Yahoo to change your password through Yahoo's web site and then try Mac Mail with that new password (making sure the password is no longer then 8 characters). Try it to see if that works.

    I dumped all my yahoo accounts for this reason. Strange, iOS has no problems with them though.
