Subject Re: [IBO] IB and IBO Newsgroup problem
Author Don Gollahon
But I have not changed the settings. I had signed up at work a few months
ago on a totally separate account and nothing ever went through to the
newsgroup. It happened to be the same email address as what was in my
Secondary email from my home account. So I signed off of the accounts from
work. Low and behold, that signed me off at home, TOO.

So I went in and turned emails on for a day, got these messages (plus about
50 more), and so today at lunch I turned the emails off again. Now let's
see what happens.

This stuff would be GREAT if it worked. But it is a pain. It appears that
Yahoo can't keep separate accounts straight if they have the same name. I'm
glad my name isn't John Smith! :)

Anyway, I'll read your email a bit closer tonight when I have time and make
sure everything is setup okay. I'm thinking about adding a new account from
work and use the name Abcdefg Zyxwvu and see if that works. Somebody
probably took that one though.
