Prevent repeated Keychain password requests
Authored by: DC Watts on Aug 30, '03 04:29:47PM

Also found this approach on >

If you checked, "Save my Password..." in Accounts, then try the following fix:

1. go to the system keychain and delete the entry for that account.
OS X: Open Keychain to delete
OS 9: System Folder>Preferences>Keychain.

2. Go to Entourage, select 'accounts' from the Tools menu, choose the account that was giving you trouble and click on Edit. Select the 'account settings' tab.

3. Delete the password from the password box in the POP settings (leaving the box empty).

4. Close the account window.

5. Re-open the account window and enter your proper password, check the 'save in keychain' check box and close the window again.

The password should now stick.

I agree with this. Both DC Watts and ragengs are right. This is what I have done and I rarely have Entourage ask for access to the keychain unless I modify my accounts or preferences in some way. I've gone months without it asking for access. I don't understand why having multiple keychains should cause a problem unless the accounts are duplicated with different settings... I use Entourage because I think it is much better than Apple's Mail. Yes there are some issues with it, but I still like it better than Mail or Eudora. I just wish that I could import my mail from my AOL pfc and get rid of AOL!
