I have been having a battle with googlemail.
I have two googlemail accounts (I won't go into the whys now).
There is the one that I set up several years ago when I opened my first blog on blogger. I very rarely look at it or use it in any way other than it allows me to use blogger. For most of the last couple of years I even forgot that I have such an account. Then for reasons of privacy I set up a new googlemail account to use for email without involving my usual email accounts that show my name.
Having opened this new account I either forgot the password or some other such device as I couldn't access the account for a few months. About a month ago when I was playing around with things on my laptop I managed to access my new google a/c. I answered the few emails that were gathering dust there. Got a few replies and have since kept this account live.
However this is having an adverse effect on my blogging. I read one of my favourite blogs, write a comment try to publish the comment only to discover that even though my computer has been turned off I am still logged into the wrong account. I lose the comment I was leaving,while I try in vain to switch accounts. The option to switch never ever works. This even happens on my own blog. So if you have been wondering why I have not been visiting you, I have, I have even tried to leave comments but to no avail. All I can do is go into the googlemail sign out and try again.
Having spent a couple of years not having to sign out of googlemail every time I turn off my computer, I am finding it hard to remember to do this now.
