i'm logging into my ftp account with my unique user id. since i also hosted other people with my old host, i'd like to host them here too, but this unique user id is a bit of an inconvenience.
this is beginning to sound a little bit confusing, so i'll try to explain in better detail.
my domain that's still with the old host is another-life.org. all of the people i hosted there log in to their ftp accounts with email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc.
with dreamhost, my domain is letter-project.com. but i can't log in to my ftp account by creating something like email@example.com, i have to log in using "amoebamoeba", which is my unique user id or what have you.
it's just all throwing me off. sorry if i sound like a complete and utter newbie. i'm obviously very, very new to dreamhost.
