Hey Dale, Can you start a topic in ATL on that since it's not really related to the IPB upgrade?

I know you're getting a lot of direction form a lot of sides, Dale. I agree with Striker's suggestions. It was where I was going next.One variable I'd like you to consider is upgrading to FF3. I don't think it's the cause of the problem, but it would help us in working with you to diagnose it. This is a personal preference, I realize. But it's also just good practice with a browser -- something that's inherently vulnerable (even on Linux) -- to stay current with the latest release. My two cents, of course. But the main reason is just to make it so all of the rest of us can communicate with you about what settings you've got.We want to help. And I'm just trying to figure out how this could happen. It could be happening to others too.-- Scot

I changed my email to my gmail account. While waiting too long for the validation email. I checked gmail's spam and there it was. I unflagged it first as spam, then followed the validation process. Gmail works where Bellsouth does not. Once I get another solution for internet, (there is a wireless solution under construction) I will be done with Bellsouth.
