My partner in our GC PBEM sends me a turn (for the third time). When he tried to open it before sending it asks for player 2 (He's the Axis). When I receive it and look at it , it calls for player 1. WTF, over? Any body got any ideas? Please? Many, many thanks in advance.

In spite of what he thinks, he is not testing AND sending the same file. That's my idea.

Tend to agree. I have one 'unfinished' turn save always and one finished turn save always. Its not too tricky to get confused on the different save routine and what you are reporting suggest you are getting an 'unfinished' turn from him - one he can still enter via his password to do orders yet to be issued.

I've seen this glich couple times before, the game is asking wrong player's password even though the save file is right. Usually I've deleted the file, downloaded it again and problem was solved.
