GROUP: /msg nickserv group MainNick MainNick'sPassword
This command lets you group up to 16 nicknames together under one password allowing you to switch between them once you're identified without needing to identify again. Switch to the un-registered nickname that you wish to group, then type the command, using the nickname and password of the nick you're grouping to.

Using this command will show you all the nicknames you have grouped with your nickname. You may only use this command on your own nickname.
