    Keychain is where Mail stores your password.

     

    Normally, you can solve this problem by going into Mail > Preferences > Accounts

     

    Clear the password field (if it's not empty already) and re-enter the password. Click out of the Accounts tab and choose 'Save' from the resulting dialog.
