Now i am a little confused... that means if i try to login using "user_1" as user and "my_passw" instead of "my_passwd"...it should work? That also means that i can use "my_passwx" or "my_pass12345" for the password and it should work too? I try to login with "my_passw" and "my_passwx" but... it doesn't work. It only works with "my_passwd"!! __________________________________ Discover Yahoo! Have fun online with music videos, cool games, IM and more. Check it out! http://discover.yahoo.com/online.html
