Yahoo Community Username problem?

Yahoo Community Username problem?

I have 2 emails one starting with elkinm and the other with elkinfam. It seems that my community usernames are reversed with elkinm email having elkinfam and elkinfam with elkinm.


But the real problem seems to be that regardless of which email I am logged into I only see the elkinfam forum username for both email logins so I effectively lost access to the elkinm username.


Can somedoy fix my access and match the community forum username to the respective emails?

So this post was posted by elkinfam which has the email elkinm, but I am logged in as the elkinfam email. Hopefully that makes sence.
