Re: Yahoo mail rejects password but only on iMac
15-Mar-2012 14:12 (in response to clr99)
Today took my iMac to the apple store in Exeter,England . We discovered that the main user key chain was sort of tripping over its self with saved passwords. What the iMac tech did was to delete the key chain and reinstall it, that was after we deleted my bt yahoo account and reinstalled it, I told him I had already done that a couple of times. Anyway after the key chain was reinstalled the mail asked for the password to be saved in the chain but then my mails started coming in, hey pesto a result, we logged out & and in a couple of times still good. Once home and set up, all was well for 15 mins or so then back to asking for my password, a complete waste of 3 hrs.
I have sort of admitted defeat and am now in the process of changing my yahoo account contacts, iTunes, ICloud etc. to a gmail account bit of a pain but I suppose I can get rid of all those rubbish emails I get.
Good luck with the quest if I do get any news I will let you know, likewise please.
P.s. if you look on the uk forum you will see we are having the same problem here and have quite an extensive discussion running with all sorts of ideas and solutions being tried. We now have apple engineers working on it.
