If you have an Exchange Server you may have a user with a device constantly checking email with an incorrect username or password. Or, there could be a device on the network (i.e., a copier) using LDAP authentication to copy to file or email with an incorrect password.

Or it could be the iTunes password or any proxy credentials error ?
