Why does talktalk email logins continually reject correctly entered passwords? I use Keychain on my iMac (and have done for years). Talktalk regularly gives an error message rejecting correct passwords which are saved in the Keychain system. Sometimes this reovers and after several attempts accepts but on occassions I have to change the password to make it accept.
This is very frustrating. Keychain is pretty bullet proof and WiFi signal is fine.

I think we've gone over this before so let's do a bit of definitive troubleshooting.
Set up a browser with webmail access side by side with the Mac Mail client.
At the same time as you get a password error with MacMail do a sign in to TalkTalk Mail. It's the same password and the browser is connecting to the mailbox as an IMAP client.
Select here: Sign in to TalkTalk Mail
Enter your full TalkTalk Mail email address and password, select Sign in.
What error do you get when signing in to the mailbox and sending mail to email@example.com - you'll see the mail send and an auto-response come back into the Inbox.
In each case:
