Okay, I would like to try to avoid a problem before it happens.

When creating a member in FUD it says "Forum login names must be unique."

I also have configured "When importing messages from a newsgroup, should a new user be created for every newsgroup author, who cannot be matched against an existing forum user." set to "Yes".

So, looking at these two together what happens where two newsgroup posts have the following info...

Name : John Smith Email js(at)work(dot)com
Name : John Smith Email js(at)home(dot)com

If there is no "existing" "John Smith" member then I guess a "new member" would be created from the first post. Correct ? If so then what happens when the second post is mirrored ? Is it rejected ? Or made as "anonymous" ?

If "yes" to either then is there any way for a FUD member to "register" with two email address' ? So that both posts get to the forum okay under the single user name ?

Can someone here help me with this please ? TIA.

Regards, John.
