When I restarted, all of a sudden Mail won't connect to my email provider with the account name and password it was using successfully before the crash. Now I keep getting the "unable to verify account name and password" message when I try to go online with the account. This is the second time I'm encountering this issue in the past 10 days, and last time I totally reloaded my system software. I am hoping not to have to do that again. The password that displays when I go to Keychain Access App and look at the mail password is not the correct password.
Aug 31, AM. Sep 1, AM. OK, I deleted the password from Keychain. Now the message I get when I try to sign onto my email with my email provider's password is "this account already exists.

Question: Q: Question: Q: mail keeps asking for password mail keeps asking for password. More Less. Ever since the upgrade to Yosemite my mail keeps forgetting the passwords, never had a problem before and the upgrade is the only thing that changed. Why is Apple sending out software with bugs for everyone else to report instead of fixing before its released? I have been fighting the email problems for some time now. Fixing the keychain has fixed it this time and I hope it is permanent.
I found a number of Orphans left from previous passwords setups. Eliminating should eliminate the errors in both sending and receiving.

The problems were inability to send and then the persistent asking for the password. Was having a problem with Yosemite Mail. Went to the settings for the Hotmail account in Mail. Opened Keychain Access. Tried to send mail again. Entered the Hotmail account password and now everything is working. Macmail is a horrible program that should not still be used.
Solving The Issue Of Apple Mail Keeps Asking For Gmail Password
I have tried to figure this problem out but it just does not go away. It seems all the issues I run into with apple takes weeks for them to isolate and resolve. This is not the apple I remember from a couple years ago. There has been a noticeable regression in support and reliability in Apple products over the years. This solution worked for me.

Instructions were clear, concise and worked beautifully. I tried your idea, and all my passwords dealing with AOL were the correct one, and the same. I can go to AOL web mail, sign in using my password and download all my mail, but not through MacMail. I tried the same idea with Verizon. I had the exact same problem.
I even tried to solve the problem by deleting my AOL and adding it back to Mac mail, but I was unable to add it back — even though I had the correct password. I was quickly sent a code, which I entered in the space provided.
1. macOS Keeps Asking for Login Keychain Password
Back in Mac Mail, when my password was requested, I copied and pasted this code. I did not use my regular AOL password. Note that, in my case, I had deleted my AOL account from Mac Mail and was adding the account back, but I think this solution should work, when AOL is on Mac Mail but stops receiving or sending, if the password needs verification. For adding back the email account, after deleting it, I did the following, after step 8, above:.

For your password, copy and paste the code that was generated in step 8, above. I have had this problem on and off for 4 years now. I ignore the message. I know all passwords are entered correctly. It does seem to do it less than it used to and it does seem to appear more with my one aol email account. However the same thing happens periodically with my gmail and icloud accounts as well. I have found that trying to fix it only makes it worse.
Art and RM have the right idea: multiple passwords for the same server and the same account in Keychain Access are not good. Sentence 4 has nothing to do with the Mail issue.
