Mint: what's with Citibank & INGDirect?

    Since Mint merged with Quicken (grin) I thought this was on topic.

    I started playing with Mint yesterday, both on PC and iPhone. That is neat
    of course, that you can acces easily from either. However, I couldn't get
    my Citibank accounts or my INGDirect account to load into the Mint account.
    Both keep giving a temporary connection problem error. Apparently Mint
    knows about this (Mint "community"), but I've seen no solution for these
    problems. Does anyone have an inkling why this is happening? I had
    expected problems with Vangurad, because of their more complicated
    authentication via web, but that and many others went OK.

    There was a "fix" in the Mint "community". In essence, you have to be
    very sure of the spelling including case-sensitive (!!) of all security
    questions, and go via the little "edit bank info" button when that
    appears after you click the "fix this" button. Also, Mint says:

    Here are a few tips that might help you answer (security questions):

    * Answer as many questions as you put on file when you registered
    with your bank.
    * The number of questions you need to answer may be less than the
    number of form fields displayed on the page.
    * For some financial institutions, the questions and answers need to
    be in the exact same order as they are listed on your banking site.
    * If you’ve forgotten the questions, you can try logging into the
    online banking at your bank’s website, or calling their online banking
    support, to retrieve them.
    * Answers to these questions may be case-sensitive. i.e. ‘Dog’ will
    work, while ‘dog’ will not.

    For both Citibank and INGDirect, I had to go through the authentication
    stuff several times, before the info entered "took", possible because the
    sequence was different each time I went through this.

    I got ING to work n my computer, but it is complicated. I also use a
    password program so that sometimes complicates things.

    Everything seems OK now ...
