constant requirement to change password

For some unknown reason AT&T will only allow me to stay signed in to my email for two weeks on my laptop. My phone stays logged in indefinitely. Every time I try to log in after the two weeks is up, I get an error message saying "The limit for unsuccessful attempts has been reached. Click change password to create a new password." I'm absolutely using the correct password but always get this message. Anyone know how to fix this? I've tried logging into my personal email on my work computer and get the same error message so it isn't my computer causing the problem.
