As of midday yesterday, is now continuosly rejecting password to my two email accounts.

To confirm that I have them correct, I logged in via Mail2web and they work fine.

Not only are they rejected but they keep getting erased from accounts listing in Mail and also from keychain.

A thread I found via web suggested erasing '' but doing that made all mailboxes disappear.

I tried setting up one of the accounts again and then the rejects started over. 

I don't know what else to try.  Connection doctor confirms the series of communications to isp ending in ERR - hence rejection.

Any help will be grreatly appreciated.  Thanks David (
