Why does Dot Mac keep rejecting my password?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I don't get this. Almost daily Mail.crap brings up an error letting me know that the server rejected my password. If I type in the password it gets rejected again. However if I quit Mail.crap and wait a half hour it works again.

This has started to really piss me off. Does anyone have any ideas why this might be happening? Does this happen to anyone else?

    same answer I just provided in this thread yesterday:


    This is Mail.app'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.

    Whoops. Watch as I clear the egg from my face and eat that plate of crow in front of me. That will teach me to check out GB more often.
