There is something wrong with your login keychain, not specific to 
MailMate. Sometimes this can be fixed by explicitly locking and 
unlocking it in Keychain Access. It can also occur if you managed 
somehow to change your login password and the keychain password 
independently of each other, which you can fix by running the 
command-line 'passwd' utility. In one case where I had this sort of 
error, nothing I tried fixed it and I had to create a new login keychain 
and copy all the old items from the original to the new one.

In older systems, Keychain Access had a "First Aid" function, but it has 
disappeared from the menus.
