    Hi, firstly, thanks for the tutorial 🙂
    But I’m facing issues while trying to create a Disposable Acc.
    When I click on the “add Address” option at top, it gives me the first window to create the base name. But once I click “Next”, I don’t get the second screen.
    I tried this on Firefox 6.0.2 & also IE 7, but same thing happens.

    Any help will be appreciated !!!!!!!!

      Once again I double cheeked it, bu couldn’t find any problem with it. You may need to wait a little time to get the next window.
