Mail Keychain Insanity - Mac Applications & Software

Using OS 10.2.6 Mail 1.2.5 Everytime I log on and open up mail I have to enter my Keychain password. Security isn't an issue for me so I have selected "Always alow access to this item" under "Access Control" in the Keychain util. Perhaps I am misunderstanding the function of the keychain settings but should this mean that any application that wants this information can have it? It seems that regardless of my settings in the "Access Control" pane the mail keychain functions the same. Is there anyway I can avoid having to enter in my keychain pass for mail ...

    Default Mail Keychain Insanity

    Using OS 10.2.6
    Mail 1.2.5

    Everytime I log on and open up mail I have to enter my Keychain
    password. Security isn't an issue for me so I have selected "Always
    alow access to this item" under "Access Control" in the Keychain util.
    Perhaps I am misunderstanding the function of the keychain settings
    but should this mean that any application that wants this information
    can have it? It seems that regardless of my settings in the "Access
    Control" pane the mail keychain functions the same. Is there anyway I
    can avoid having to enter in my keychain pass for mail everytime I
    login?

    Thanks

    Try this:

    Open the Keychain application (Applications/Utilities) and look for a
    Settings item in the Edit menu. Fiddle with those settings.

    I took a shot in the dark and changed my keychain password the same as
    my login password. It worked! Finally I can get some sleep ;)

    I tried Keychain First Aid. It found the problem that the keychain
    password didn't agree with the login password and recommended I fix it.
    Okay, so I go to repair, and guess what? Keychain wants me to input the
    corrupted password, which if I had it I wouldn't be using the repair utility!

    So I deleted the keychain file from my home directory Library and deleted
    the keychain plist from my home prefs folder and restarted. All is back to
    normal. Fortunately I don't use Keychain or I'd have lost all the entries
    in it.

    C'mon Apple, get with it!
