Constant Password Request Issues

If you are repeatedly asked for your mail password after setting Apple Mail or Mac Outlook this can be caused by a system keychain issue. Mac Keychain stores passwords when instructed to by the user, and when you change that password at a later date, issues can arise. To resolve this, close the application and delete all keychain entries related to the problem application. For example, click the spotlight icon in the right corner and type in "keychain." Keychain Access will launch. Search for keychain items related to Mail or Outlook and delete all of them. Re-open the application in question and enter your password one more time. This should resolve it until you change your password again, and you may need to repeat these steps.
