Wow. I have no idea how to answer those questions. I just forgot my
password. It's on jabber.org. Beyond that - I have no idea.
I don't have a server. Do you suppose Jabber.org will lend me their "spool
files" so I can find my password?
If this is the wrong list, then please direct me to the right one. :-)
