I'm on 24.4.1, where the page probably exists even less.  However, even
if it did exist, wouldn't it be better to call it "Multiple accounts on
the same server with Gnus" if it doesn't just apply to Gmail?

Yeah, that ole internet thing sure does need fixin'.

But before I do that, I still have the problem that I can only access
one of the accounts.  The same set of folders appear twice, once
each for the secondary select method entries "one" and "two".

I can get the folders of either account, but Which folders I get seems
to depend on the order of the entries in the .authfile.  So it look as
if, once the connection to the server is made, the connection for the
second account is skipped, because Gnus has already seen the server.  Is
that a possible explanation?

Cheers,

Loris
