I guess DH Support is busy catching up (it was 200 plus notes 5 days ago, now somethig like 500 plus). I also put a note in forum here, but it was so long and complex, plus it just moves on down the lsit til no-one sees it. So, forgetting about the long histry of trying to change spam filtering and how I accidentally dleted my mailboxes in the effort to get rid of catch alls, I have THIS email problem that I would like to clear
up as soon as possible. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?
I use 3 domains (well, the main two I use are arenson.org and tokyoprogressive.org). imcjapanstream.org was given to me by DH but i don’t much use it. All 3 are aliased as far as the website goes (they all show the same website).
(The part I hate most about Dreamhost (the only thing) -for most people it is a dumb hard-to-remember number, but at least for me it is a name)
For purposes of setting up an email program (I will change it in the interest of security HERE from what it really is)
My mailboxes on the web have always been the same, but I must have muddled it up by deleting all those forwardings in the mistaken (?) belief I had to do that to implement that spam filter. (My fault I guess).
Likewise I have at east one user who has also been affected. She wants to do the same (and see HER mail–not mine, haha!) no nmatter which domain she uses. her name is wakana.
In trying to reinstate the mail boxes and fortwading, I think I screed up–> can anyone tell me where?
Now, depending on the domain, you see diffeermt things. I guess there is no way to get mail back so that no matter what you type( paul@ any domain) or( wakana@any domain), they will see the same things since, whwatever is screwed up will not be able to recover all mails… (nothing seems to be lost, it is just that the boxes have diffeernt degrees ofmutual sameness).
At this point, I just want to make sure I can get it to the state I describe above.
[i]Also, before I start, am think, since I use imap on mine at leats–of moving all messages to a folder on my hard drive, and doing same for wakana, fixing mailboxes, and moving back…Is that a good idea or un-needed?[/i]
FOR WHAT IT IS WORTH, HERE ARE THE SETTINGS FROM MY CONTROL PANEL, (Doing it by domain). I am changing mailbox numbers/names in the interest of security, just in case.

This has no problem

SHOULDN’T WAKANA HAVE A "NOTHING ELSE BUT ENTRY? I ONCE SET IT UP LIKE THAT, I COULD SWEAR!!!)
8 MB / 1800 MB (0%)
Nothing besides “japanimc”.
(UNUSED ACCOUNT AT THIS POINT)
I do not see imcjapanstream.org in the list of addresses. I must have deleted this when I deleted the other stuff.
(I do not see the imcjanstream.org domain there, but that is a lesser problem for now).
Same for wakana.
THANKS!!! (I hope someone with a better sense of detail can help me before I go craz(ier).
email@example.com (on webmail) is showing 193 messages…seems to be correct based on imcjapan mailbox settings as in my email (MOZILLA) program.
wakana@tokyoprogressive is showing 143 messages, whcih seems to be correct.
firstname.lastname@example.org is not showing all. Interesting, because I know she uses email@example.com as her main mailing address, but she only uses webmail and for all i know (can’t ask her now) she logs on to the tokyoprogressive.org web interface.
Can eanyone help?
THANKS AND WISH I COULD BUY YOU A BEER FOR THE HELP…well, if someone CAN help and there is a way for me to send somethig physically or virtually from Japan, please let me know.
