For what it's worth, I also have an AT&T email account, and several times a day it asks me (on my iPhone) to re-enter my password.

Reading your message inspired me to just delete the account.

I strongly recommend getting your own domain name for email. (I use klein.us for personal email, and yourmacexpert.com for business related stuff.)

There are some big benefits to owning your own domain:
• You can keeping using the email address, even if you switch to a new ISP
• You can have multiple email addresses or aliases*.
• If you're ever dissatisfied with your mail hosting company, you can take your business elsewhere.

The downside is that you have to pay for the domain and hosting, but the total might only be $20 or $30 a year.


* Regarding aliases: My real address is steven@ the above two domains. But I have aliases so that steve@ (without the "N") and stephen (wrong spelling) also work.
