You don't want to do that. Besides being the location for passwords, Keychain stores numerous certificates, which are needed to verify the authenticity of secure (https/SSL) connections.
Ok, If I don't want to do that - then how do I stop the KeyChain popping about 20 times when the user receives a HTML email and it keeps asking for the Keychain password and of which they do not know it?
If there is anyway to help the users - all suggestions welcome.

The Mac are connected to a Microsoft Active Directory environment with Exchange 2003.
The Mac Users login to their machines with AD Username and Passwords, and the Entourage client pops up requesting Usename, Domain & Password when they connect. So that's how they work.
Now when they go to open a HTML email or go to the internet - the Keychain keeps popping up - the user clicks cancel about 20 times and eventually they are able to get on the internet or look at the HTML email.
So you can imagine their frustration.
So how can I stop the Key chain from popping up?

I hate the keychain. I use google chrome to store my passwords and I don't care who can acess it or how much better other people think the keychain is. I want to disable it. It defeats the purpose of storing passwords if you have to enter a stupid password everytime you use a stored one. So can someone tell me how to disable the keychain please?

Go ahead trash it and see what happens. Be my guest.
/System/Library/Frameworks/SecurityInterface.framework/Versions/A/Resources/zh_T W.lproj/KeychainSettingsPanel.nib (and many more where these are.)

don't know if you have solved this problem alreday. I also think this keychain is a very bad thing for a professional environment as it' s just not thought to the end. The thing is you have to teach your users changing their passwords only using a Mac and only then in the system preferences / users part. This is for my knowledge the only place Mac OS X tries to keep those passwords in sync. Also whey your users use more than one Mac or logging in to other machines I made the best experience in setting up mobile accounts and sync the whole folder ~/Library/Keychains between the machines. This makes sure that when you cange the account password on one Mac the keychain will replicate to all other machines you logon and so the password of the account and the keychain fits again. Works ok for me. Anyway my keychain has Alzheimer and I have to type randomly passwords once in a while. Especially Messages and FaceTime passwords are a horror.
Hope it helps.

I'm having a similar problem. I tried this: http://www.ehow.com/how_8678285_disable-keychain-mac.html
And that got rid of the majority of the pop-ups, but it's still doing it. I have to click "cancel" on the pop-ups 3 times each time it pops up, which is frequently. In order to reset my password for this site so that I could post to this discussion I has to enter 2 characters into the box, click "cancel" on the pop-up 3X, enter 2 more characters, click cancel 3 more times... etc. for both the new password and the confirmation. It also wouldn't let me use the password I wanted to, which is why I couldn't remember what it was in the first place, it keeps making me change it to something new. Aside from keeping passwords on a post it note on the computer, which would defeat the purpose, I don't know how to get around this.
...and I used to prefer macs because they were more user friendly. I've been having trouble with tabs in safari not closing when I click on the "X", and other little stuff for a long time too. In the last year or so I'm starting to think that as long as I have to put up with this kind of buggy stuff I might as well do it on a PC for half the price.

Hello you can reset the users keychain by deleting the keychain preferences in Users/Library/Keychains then deleted the contents of that folder log out and and log back in and the keychain password will reset to the users current password hope this helps

WildinPunk, that was a great tip, worked perfectly to put to death in 10 seconds the incessant password prompts that were driving my daughter crazy on her account. You are our hero of the day!

What I did is: Went into Keychain Access and I went to the login tab, I right clicked it and it said delete. I thought it was pretty self explanitory that it would stop it from popping up while logging into something, and it worked. So it hasn't popped up with a keychain since I did this.

Why does Apple not offer a tool to automatically sync the login password with the keychain password when Active Directoy needs to be used? Maybe add a button "Sync with AD" in the user account area?
