    Each other or one another



    I just want to know if "each other" and "one another" are interchangeable . I did my best to know the answer myself but I couldn't . I skimmed all my English dictionaries and grammar books, but I got nothing . So what do you think?

    Do you think this statement is true ? I found it in one website but it does not click!

    Each other refers to two, one another to more than two.

    Thanks

    It can very often be right, not always though.

    We could help each other = the two
    I can remember when we gave one another presents = the two.
