in Genius Bar edited January 2014
The .Mac server ? rejected the password for user ?blah?

Please re-enter your password, or cancel.

So I do and it continues to come up! What am I doing wrong?

    I have that too sometimes. Not with .Mac, I have a different e-mail address. I always solve it by quitting, waiting a few minutes, then opening it again.

    My guess is that it's because you checked your mail a little bit too often, and then the server decided that he'd keep you out for some time. I have set to check every 5 minutes for new mail. When I'm on the computer the whole day, I'll get the error on the end of the day? overload.

    I have two .Mac e-mail addresses, and I've been getting it with the add-on account a lot in the last week or so. I've been wondering what the deal is.

    This is's anemic way of saying it can't properly contact the server. It assumes that it's just a bad l/p combination and reports that as the error. Choosing to cancel and then reconnecting later will work.

    I have the same problem. I push cancel and then click on online account later on.
