    Hi all,

    I've got a question that I'm not sure what the answer is.

    I've got a folder protected with .htaccess on my site. The protection works if the folder is accessed with a browser. However, if I connect with an FTP client, there is no extra password information required and I can delete, add, etc. to that folder.

    I'm sure there's an easy answer and I probably already know it but I've been having a hard time figuring it out for sure.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    .htaccess only configures http access. It has no effect on mail or ftp access.

    Thanks for the both of you for the replies.

    Thanks Mike for clearing that up. I suspected that may be the case because no other reason made sense.
