    I have this ongoing problem and REALLY want to solve it.

    I have the following email accounts ( in order of importance ):

    -MAC
    -AOL
    Second AOL email
    -HOME Broadband

    Each has their own password, which I have set up in Mail, and for years it has worked with no problems - I start Mail and instantly have access to all my accounts without having to enter passwords.

    But about a year ago for no apparent reason, when I started Mail it would ask me to enter the password for my Second AOL email account. I tried re-entering all my details in Mail preferences, but no luck :confused:

    Now, again for know reason, it is asking me for my HOME Broadband password.:mad::mad:

    So in a nutshell every time I start Mail, I have to manually enter passwords for two of my four accounts - really annoying.

    I am running the latest Snow Leopard, and have never ( knowingly ) used or set up Keychains,

    Any help would be most appreciated!:eek::eek:

    sounds like the passwords have been removed from your keychain or mail is confused about which ones to use in the keychain.

    open up keychain access , click key chain access in menu bar then keychain first aid,

    enter your password and let it repair the keychain

    hope this helps.
