pull up Netscape and try going to Ustav first does it not ask you
to log in?
E-groups uses a cookie to determine who you are. At home
this cookie is sitting there waiting to be exchanged so that e-groups
can take you right to your space or even to a specific function
(such as mangement) inside a specific list. Apparently you can't
use the same username at both work and home without having to log in
from one or the other. One functional cookie per username. I
assume you first logged in from your home address. You could reverse
the behaviour by using the change username function while logged in
at work and then entering and saving the same username information -
which will cause delivery of a new cookie to your work computer. Of
course you would then have to log in from home.
As an alternative to having to log-in from work, I use separate
usernames from work and from home so that e-groups immediately
recognizes me from both places. Of course you have to be subscribed
to each list from both names for that to work, so I only do it for the
lists I manage, or ones that require membership in order to read
the on-line archives. I set the delivery to "Read from web only" for
my work address so that I don't overwhelm AlliedSignal's resources with
my private mail. (// sarcasm //)
