Customer Question

I am getting a continuous error message on my Mac saying that "The server responded with an error.... it did not recognize your user name and password XXXXX accountXXX@XXXXXX.XXX. I do not know how to fix this. This for sure is my username and I am pretty sure the password XXXXX XXXXX too.

What do I do??

Thanks.

Mac Extraordinaire :

Greetings,

Can you please explain your issue in further detail?

Which website are you having this problem with signing in?

Customer :

There is no website involved. I am getting the error message on my desktop. Interestingly enough though the i-cal icon jumps up and down when the error message is on. At one point I was asked to go into Mobile M preferences but I could find my way to do that.

Mac Extraordinaire :

Please, elaborate....

Mac Extraordinaire :

Which window asks for the username/password credentials?

Customer :

I had a onetoone appointment at the Apple Store last week as my calender was no longer synching between my i-phone and my Mac. The problem has arisen since that time. Today, earlier, I had a chat with someone from applecare who looked at my i-phone and reinstatted Mobile Me. The problem, she indicated must be on the Mac end and she referred me to Mobile Me support and that is how I got to you.

Mac Extraordinaire :

Ok, so the problem is that Mobile Me asks for the email username and password, but you are entering the wrong one?

Customer :

Another error message has come up that indicates that I have entered an invalid Mobileme member name and password in MobileMe system preferences. I do not understand how this has happened as I was with the technical support person in the Apple Store when we set it up and it works on the i-phone now. I admit I do not know how to verify my name and password in System Preferences nor why I am being asked to do so as this was done a few days ago. But perhaps incorrectly??

Mac Extraordinaire :

In the system preferences, have you already verified that you have set the password correctly?

Customer :

How do I get into mobile me system preferences?

Mac Extraordinaire :

I am not too familiar with MobileMe.

Mac Extraordinaire :



For this reason, I am opting out of the question and allowing another expert the chance to help.

I wish you luck // Peace.

Customer :

Thank you. I do need a mobile me expert I think.

Customer :

I am going to have to go offline soon. Is there someone to help me today? Otherwise I would like to request that my request and payment be cancelled.

Customer :

I have gone offline. Please cancel my payment. Thank you.

Mac Extraordinaire :

The refund request has been sent.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
