I did a fresh install of iOS 6 onto my iPhone 4S. I was able to sign in to gmail, iCoud, Twitter, Facebook, etc. However whenever I go to my 'Mail' app, I get the message "Password Missing Enter the password for the account "iCloud".". So i'll enter my iCloud password and the message will pop up again. If I click cancel, my mail will load and i'll be able to view it.. but once I'm done, the same message pops up, every time.

Thank you for your help. I tried what you suggested, and everything verified after clicking 'Done'. However it still happens. Going to try the link you provided to see if that helps with the issue. Thanks again.
So going to the Manage Apple ID page seems to have done the trick. Which is odd as I only logged in, didn't change anything. Now Mail on my iPhone is no longer showing that annoying popup. Thanks.

Re: iOS Mail
I've logged into "Manage Your Apple ID" as suggested above and saved no changes, but it seems I still have the problem. I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that I have a primary (old, non-editable) Apple ID of [email]MyName@mac.com[/email] (an email address I no longer have access to) and an alternate Apple ID of [email]MyName@me.com[/email]. My devices and iTunes Store all show my primary @mac.com Apple ID, even though that is not used for iCloud.
I only get the popup when I'm in the Mail application. It comes up even if iCloud Mail is turned off in Mail Settings. (and turning iCloud Mail OFF does NOT remove it's folders from the Mail application... it's still there no matter what)
I am running ios6.0.1 jailbroken.
Sure would appreciate any further great help you or others might be able to offer on this. The popup drives me crazy.
