No luck. I tried instructions as I had before.

I have a large number of sites-@yahoo.com, but I gues this time I have to look for another site. (I wish that I could change them all at once. Yahoo is getting worse with each change.

I knew this was a yahoo problem and they don't have a real crew to address problems, only a forum.

Thanks anyway,
