Subject RE: Login works with Chrome but not IE7?
Date Thu, 28 May 2009 07:21:09 GMT
Not sure. According to posts on this "bug" the RFCs rule out the use of
underscores in a fully qualified domain name. So technically, IE is
following the standards and other browsers are not. This suggests that IE8
will not handle underscores in the domain name either.

However, Microsoft allows underscores in computer names within a Windows
Network domain and there seem to be lots of folks out there who use them. If
you decide to host a web server on such a machine for use within your
intranet, then cookies will be broken on IE but not other browsers!

Wow!  Thanks for the update, that would've been pretty much impossible  
to find!

Does IE8 have the same problem still?
