try going to utilities>keychain Access app. unlock it, key chains>logins, fill in all the correct info and the password needs to match your provider pwsd. If you are using AT&T they are going to an iMap, make sure they match Mail and your provider, and save changes.Click remember in my keychain. You will probably need to enter your login pswd as well.

Sorry, No fix from me, JUST TOTAL AGREEMENT.
You are not crazy, I cannot get rid of this bug either.
To re-iterate: I am not making a mistake or forgetting to do anything.
Just a stupid bug that has existed for at least a year in my case on my:
Mac OS X 10.6.8 using Mail v 4.6:
Email settings DEFINITELY correct and perfect
Correct password entered
"Remember this password in Keychain" ALWAYS chosen
Items exists in Keychain, Definitely saved, No Errors nor typo's
seems to be in my pop3.live (hotmail & outlook com) accounts only
(PS: You have to log into your hotmail and outlook accounts via regular browser every once in a while when using 3rd party email client to 're-validate' your account as per MS agreements: this gets enforced ocassionally)
STUPID BUG !! But I am not holding my breath for fix, as this bug doesnt exist on my newer 10.8.x Macs
