    I have 6 email addresses that sync with apple mail. Almost every day, mail will prompt me for my password for one of the emails, and no matter how many times i give it the correct password it says wrong password and prompts me again. after ignoring it for an hour or so, the problem fixes itself.

    any way to get this to stop reoccurring?

    Repair your keychain.

    Keychain Access>Keychain First Aid>Repair Keychain.

    No problems found.

    Even when I give mail the account password, it says it's incorrect. weirdest thing.

    Delete all your email passwords from Keychain and let it store them again.
