I would like Mail to ask for my password when I open it. But it keeps entering my password automatically in preferences even when I delete the password and save. Next time I open Mail my password has been automatically entered. I also cannot find anything in Keychain Access that will fix this. How do I fix this?

You don't fix it because it's not broken. If the behavior is not to your satisfaction, you can file a feature request with Apple (where it will be prioritized against other things based on demand and other considerations) but your only practical short term solution is to find a different mail client that offers the functionality you want.

  • Make your account a protected parental account and white list the apps you want to allow. You will know the separate admin user/password to allow launch of prohibited apps. Voila - any app you want is now password protected.
