    My keychain has decided not to remember my passwords now... For Adium I use a hotmail account, and I also have the same account set up in Mail. They never remember my password though. It's the same password, and both apps used to remember it. The password was in the keychain, but then I deleted it, and when I re-entered it in Adium or Mail I clicked on the 'Remember Password' box but it didn't re-create the password...

    So what's going on? Anybody able to help me? :) Thanks.

    This has been a bit of a problem for a while, check these:

    Personally, checking for new messages every 30 mins cleared this problem up for me. I tried deleting the login from the keychain (for mail and adium) and resetting, I changed my password...didn't work. Thankfully checking for messages less often did because it was a pain to enter a UN and PSW every few mins.
