    For some reason my Mail keeps wanting my password for the POP account. Even when I tell it to keep it on the key chain it keeps asking for it over and over again. I am running 10.5.5 will all the updates that I know of and I am getting tired of it asking for my password ever 10 seconds. :mad: Any help would be appreciated.

    It normally does that when it can't connect to the server for some reason. It assumes it's a bad password, normally it means the server is down or timing out...

    Is there anything that I can do on my end or is all on the Comcast side?

    It's probably at their end. There is nothing I can suggest that you can do at your end. Do they have a status page or anything like that?

    You could try the connection doctor (Window->Connection Doctor) in Mail...
