Road Runner password rejection

I have a MAC mini. Am getting this message - The POP server "" rejected the password for user "our RR user name"

Please re-enter your password, or cancel. This comes through every few months, then eventually disappears. PITA when it's poping up.

Can anyone tell me is this is legit or phishing???? Haven't received any email today, but that's not unusual.

Joe: I changed the frequency of retrieving mail from every 5 minutes to every 15. Seems to have worked. Thanks so much for the link.
