Sorry, I wasn't explicit enough.  I did realise that I needed another
entry in 'gnus-secondary-select-methods', but I just couldn't see how to
differentiate if from the existing one, given that I was using the
server address as the name of the entry, and this is the same for both
accounts.  Thus, Adam pointing out that the "Address" for the select
method can be any string, not just the server address, was very helpful.
