Avoid keychain access problems in Entourage Apps
After you go through and set up the 'all access' rights in your keychain, be sure to edit your keychain settings (Edit -> Change Settings for Keychain "whatever"), and make sure Lock after x minutes of inactivity isn't checked.

If it is checked, you can do everything else right, but keychain will keep getting locked every few minutes, prompting keychain password requests when checking email.

Indeed. This is a very poorly written hint - although useful if one could actually understand it.

To use more legible terminology:

If you're having problems with your Keychain automatically locking:

  • Start the application 'Keychain Access'.
  • Select the keychain you're having problems with. Most likely it'll be the 'Login' keychain.
  • Go to the 'Edit' menu and select 'Change settings for Keychain Login'
  • Here, you can change whether your keychain auto-locks when sleeping and if you want it to auto-lock after a period of inactivity.
