I have a Flickr account which is used infrequently. It has now been moved under the Yahoo umbrella and only recognises the @btopenworld, rather than @btinternet address I used previously. The btopenworld seems to be the primary address on my account, but it looks like I can't change that to my preferred of the btinternet one.
I have restarted my computer and then tried to logon onto Flickr again, using the Openworld address but it just returns the following error message (I have removed my name and substituted it with "MY NAME"!):
We're sorry, but there's a problem.
Here's what going on:
Your MY.NAME@btopenworld.com Yahoo! ID uses the email address MY.NAME@btopenworld.com. That email address is already associated with the MY NAME account on Flickr.
Here's what to do:
Do you have any suggestions on how I can access my account, both to upload photos and view the ones I have stored there? This error message won't go and I can't get round it
Couple of things. btopenworld and btinternet addresses are completely interchangeable.
Flickr has absolutely no connection with BT now, so you would be better posting on the Yahoo forum.
Thanks for the reply. Been trying the Yahoo help forum and would say that 'Help' is not a word I would apply to it. A crystal ball would be better!
I'm assuming you took out a subscription once the free BT accounts were closed down some years ago.
I know things changed, but can't remember the background - it didn't seem relevant as long as I could still access my photos. I only use it after my holidays and the last time I logged on was January. The Yahoo 'help' site seems next to useless as there are already a number of posts about the same issue and a good many complaining about how user UNfriendly it is.
