    MobileMe Password Change

    I have the same problem and started a thread about it on Apple's discussion board, see http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1904914&start=0&tstart=0

    First, I'd suggest sending Apple feedback on it (select "Provide iPhoto Feedback" from the iPhoto menu).

    When you change your MM password, you need to enter the new password in MobileMe in System Preferences. When you select MobileMe in System Preferences, it will (correctly) say that your password has changed and ask for the new one.

    It looks like the problem with iPhoto is that when you enter the new password in MobileMe preferences, the keychain entry for it isn't being updated. Look for publish.me.com in Keychain Access. It will probably have the old password. Changing it there and then signing out/in in MM System Preferences seems to fix the problem with iPhoto. If not, try deleting publish.me.com in Keychain Access and then sign out/in to MobileMe in System Preferences.

    Give it a try and post what happens.

    Great help.

    I love the plethora of helpful information available online, especially clear, simple, yet invaluable, hints like the Keychain Access one. I had the same prob with changing MM password and iPhoto not syncing. Now it works perfectly. Thank you.

    You, sir, are a steely-eyed missile man! Your suggestion was the answer and perfect fix. Hopefully Apple has noted the issue. Thank you!
