so I'd love a copy privately, please.
It might even get me into writing clips properly, about all I've done is
amend the "Format Email" one to suit my way of working and added a character
or two to the HTML "Special Character" clipbar button.

Thank you for your responses.
<<no problem to use Outlook to work with more than one ISP>>
Although I'm using Outlook Express v6, your point is still valid.
<<What you should have is two accounts, not two identities.>>
That's exactly the info I needed.
<<http://www.tomsterdam.com/ is the best site I know for finding answers about
That's a very useful site. Your claithelp pages are very well written.
My initial problem was caused by my uncritically accepting the "help" of a
very rushed tech at the broadband company. That's how I ended up with a
separate identity. He also told me I had to export my address book from the
old account (dial-up) and import it into the new one (broadband). I realized
it wasn't necessary to export/import because I merely moved all my addresses
into the shared folder. I wasn't able to see a comparable way to share all my
mail rules, however. This is now moot because I just created a new account
for broadband under the original identity.
It wasn't working because I was naming the POP3 and SMTP servers incorrectly.
The naming conventions are very different at the two ISPs. (This is a point
Greg made, and I would emphasize.)
<<I have written a clip that I use in the morning to set my outgoing pop and
other I use in the evening to set my other outgoing pop.>>
I am subscribed on the ntb-clips group, and I would be interested in seeing
the clip. Until I gain confidence in this new setup, I'll continue to make
necessary switches manually, but I do appreciate the offer.
This email, itself is a bit of a test because I'm using the broadband account
to send it. I have been successfully sending test messages to myself, but
this one involves Yahoo. I may not get to see this posted until later
tonight because the dial-up phone is in use for another purpose.
Thanks again for your help
