Mail application issue with .mac accounts?

Mac OS X 10.4.8
Mail 2.1.1
I have 4 .mac accounts setup with mail app.
every time I've open it mail ask me about the password. any time with differect account.
What I've try to do to resolve problem:
1. Keychain first aid- no problem founds
2. Delite and reapply passwords to keychain- no effects
3. Use cance when the password request dialog appearsl- works temporary, next syncronisation password dialog appears for other account. temporary works, but password dialog appears again in 1-2-3 sync left.
4. Check network settings  Settings Internet connection what I use on the first place.
Get new email every 5 min.
5. Instead Mail I can connect with web without any issues
I guess thes is not password issue...
My ISP is DSL Extreme.
All accounts are setup with and
I have 3 mac's but only ONE has this problem. If I use other Mac from this location- no problem.
I guess this is not ISP issue...
So what left? no idea, Guys, please help to resolve this situation.
Thank you in advance,

Hi there, thank you for quick respond.
Yes. other mac - laptop it has same settings and accounts inside mail applications and doesn have a problem with send/recive emails. All settings exactly the same.
I forgot, I did this trick before.
Add new user to problem mac.
The same situation. when I start app, it may work a couble sync, after it assk me about password again.
If I click cancel, it runs sync normally, but next sync ask me about the password. every time it may be for one of 5 (I add new account).
