[X-Apps] 1. mail.app losing passwords

setting to check for 5 minutes instead of every minute just means that 
the password prompt shows up less often. i went back into the keychain 
access and added several mail/applications to the always allow section 
as the my 'working' accounts seem to have at least 6 occurrences but 
that hasn't helped either. i did notice that when i set the new changes 
i was only given buttons to cancel or allow once... and could not find 
a way to activate the always allow button.

open to more suggestions.... :-)..

thank you/s
