MobileMe / Mail :: How To Reset Password

I've lost my password to my MobileMe account, and everytime I ask to reset it, it takes me back to my Apple ID account. When I reset that, it still doesn't affect my Mobile Me account.

Question: how can I reset my password, then, to Mobile Me?

MobileMe / Mail :: Cannot Login Password Changed
All of a sudden I can't sign in to my MobileMe account. Nor will the MacBookPro's mail app sign in either. When I try to login MobileMe keeps telling me that my password changed. Except if it has I wasn't the one doing the change. How to get this cleared up?

MobileMe / Mail :: Lost Password For Family Account
My other half has lost her password for her sub-account of my MobileMe Family Account. She cannot login to MobileMe to set a new one, and there appears to be no Lost Password link on any page of my MobileMe settings to help her out. Neither of us can remember the password for her online MobileMe account either, so she cannot login to change it. I read on another post that this was a security feature, but it is too secure IMO. We now have a useless email account, if I delete it we can never have the same address again, I can't edit the settings to change the password, and Apple provides no way for me to have MobileMe send her a link to find her lost password, or email her password or a new temp password to her secondary email address.

The only good thing is that she is not a minor who is in trouble, needing her email to be monitored for paedophile contact and I am not reassured that a parent can be locked out of their children's emails while the child innocently gives away their secret information to potential online stalkers. So, is there any way to stimulate a lost password notification that allows us to start fixing this?

MobileMe / Mail :: Unable To Login Or Change Password?
I'm unable to log into my MobileMe account - says incorrect password. When I ask for a password reset by sending to my email address on file, I receive no email. When I ask for a reset by answering a question, it does not accept my date of birth. I'm afraid that my account has been altered or hacked in some way. Yet, I am able to receive and send emails from the Me account using Mail.

MobileMe :: IMAP Server Rejecting Mail Password
Every now and then, like just now, when I opened up mail I get a message, : Enter the password for Account MobileMe. The mobile me IMAP server ' rejected the password for user '______' Enter your password again or cancel. Mail normally comes up automatically as the password is stored. But I enter my correct password again and it still rejects it.This has happened before and usually self corrects in a day or so, but still is seriously annoying.My wife's MacBook Pro did this a couple days ago and still wont work. She has a MacBook Pro, I have a MacBook.They both run Snow Leopard and we both switched over to ICloud a while back.

MobileMe :: Mail Won't Accept Password Even Though It Is Correct?
Something is wrong with my mail client. Even though I am 100% certain that the password is correct (I get mail on my iPhone and when I log onto iCloud site), my mail will not accept the password. I've tried even to delete the account and set it up again, but that doesn't work either.

ITunes :: Not Receiving A 'Reset Password' Mail From Apple For Old Registered Id?
I received a mail from Apple with regards to change in settings of my iTunes or Apple ID on my Hotmail Account. So I clicked the change account and created a new Account using my Gmail ID. Little did I know, after successfull completion that the apps downloaded using my hotmail id would not be allowed to update using my ne registered gmail id. 

So, I try to login using my old id (yes hotmail). Now the catch is I forgot the pass for this id. So I click 'forgot pass' and a msg comes send email notification. Now comes the main point! I'm not recieving a single mail from apple on my pass retrival?! Which means i cannot update my apps (including the paid one's) + I'm scared that my CC deatails will be miss-used on the old id!

OS X Leopard :: Master Password Won't Reset User Password
I'm locked out of my Macbook. I changed my user's password, then when I tried to log back into OSX it didn't recognise my new password. I tried my old password + some variations of the new password (incase I typo'd) by no luck. I know my master password, which the login prompt asks for after a few failed attempts so I can reset my user password. When I type in the master password it takes me to a screen getting me to reset my user password. So I type a new password, verify it in the second field, and click Log In. but the box shakes and I still can't get in. The new passwords definitely match, I've even tried really simple ones so there can be no error.

Mac Pro :: Reset The Password Without Knowing The Original Password?
My mother recently passed away and I've inherited her Mac Pro. She was the official "administrator" and no one knows her password. Is there any way to reset the password without knowing the original password? Or, is there a way to reset the whole laptop to factory settings? I'm not concerned about losing content from the laptop.

MobileMe / Mail :: Redundant Sent Mail And Trash / Deleted Messages Folders In Mail And Mobileme
I have duplicates of sent, trash, draft and junk mail folders in my mail app and mobileme account.

In my Mail app, on the left sidebar, I have two Sent folders - one under the main Mailboxes heading (with the paper plane icon) and one under my Mobileme account heading as a "Sent messages" folder (with a plain folder icon).

Ditto for Trash (under Mailboxes, with a trash can icon) and "Deleted messages" (a plain folder under Mobileme). I also have two Junk mail folders and two Draft mail folders.

I'm not sure what's going on with the junk and draft mail folders...

But for the Sent and Trash/Deleted mail folders, it seems like any mail that I send or delete from the Mail app goes into the original mailbox folders (with the paper plane and trash can icons) but any mail that I send or trash from, say, my iPhone goes into the Mobileme folders.

OS X :: Reset Administrator Password - Root Changes
I just bought a used Emac running 10.3.9. The previous owner does not remember the administrator password nor did I realize how important it is to have. I have the original install discs and did boot using the disc. I then went under the install menu and chose reset password. I changed the user password but have been unsuccessful at changing the admin password. The drop down menu in password reset gave me the option of Administrator (root), Application, or finally user. I have read a couple of articles cautioning not to change or work with root changes.
