    Hi everyone, I was hoping you could answer a question for me.

    A few minutes ago I was syncing my iPhone with iTunes as usual when there was a strange pop-up that said something (can't remember exactly) along the lines of something-sync (apple sync?) 'wants to access stmp.gmail.com' on the iPhone keychain. It gave me the option of Deny, Allow, and Always Allow.

    iTunes had never pulled this on me before, so I hit deny, and now I'm wondering if that was a bad idea or if it's related to Mail backup. Can someone confirm this for me?

    For the record, I just installed Path Finder earlier today, so I don't know if that had anything to do with it.

    EDIT: I did make preference changes to my iPhone as well... one of them being the change in Push Notifications for email from every 15 minutes to every 30 minutes. I don't know if that would have done it either.

    Maybe something to do with Calendar or Contacts sync.
    Do you sync iCal & Address Book??
    Do you use Google Sync for Mobile??
    Do you use Google Calendar?

    You should of let it 'Always Allow' I think its related to the syncing on the mail account. Possibly how you send emails since its the smtp.

    Yea, it likely is Gmail related if you use Gmail. Never had that, and I don't know why it would be related to syncing ...

    I use Google Calendar and have it set up to sync with my phone... I still get mails from my Gmail account, so I don't know what that could have been. It hasn't shown up since. Then again, Finder/Path Finder did manage to freeze up the screen together right before this happened (had to log out/log in again), so maybe that could have triggered it.
