Abstract: Let *E* be a locally *m*-convex algebra with dual space . In a recent paper S. Warner asked if the finest locally *m*-convex topology on *E* compatible with was the mackey topology. It is shown that this is not the case. A similar result is given for this question in the *A*-convex algebra case. For any *A*-convex algebra, a construction is given of an associated locally *m*-convex algebra. It is shown that this associated locally *m*-convex topology is always the compact-open topology for the space with the strict topology.
