Smtp server rejected password mac mail

I know the user name but not the password, so who do I contact to reset the password? If I understand correctly, it sounds like you don't know the password to access your email from the server, even directly at the email server's website? There have been court cases about this; they protect privacy by not giving out the password to anyone for almost any reason.

Why Does Mail Keep Asking For My Password?

I am seeing this with all my users today. I have 4 mac users and my own test account. ALL of them are getting this error when trying to connect to icloud using a client such as Outlook for Mac. This just started today Friday June 16, It is am PST in California right now. I expect this is a server-based authentication problem that is not the fault of all the clients at the same time losing their passwords or somehow forgetting them. So apple NOC needs to fix this issue. So I am connecting to imap.

My wife gets a slightly different variation, dialog saying bad password on the POP account. Part of the problem is that if Apple Mail has any sort of connection problem with the mail server, it reports it as a bad password, when in fact the password is just fine, and it's really some network problem somewhere on the internet between your computer and the mail server.

Quite often just selecting Cancel and letting it try again resolves it. It's Mail's generic error message for almost every network issue. Click "cancel" and try checking your mail again in a couple of minutes.
