Subject RE: REPOST: NEED HELP URGENT:: internet explorer nullifies sessio n on open new window
Date Tue, 13 Nov 2001 18:42:23 GMT
We have recently discovered a (P3P?) default in IE 6 that affects accepting
cookies across domains.  For example, we had a frameset in foo.com that had
one frame in foomail.com that was setting a cookie in its own domain, but
was refused by IE6's default presumably because the frameset was in a
different domain.  We were able to change this behavior by editing the
preferences mentioned below which were found at Tools>Internet
Options>Privacy(New tab in IE6)>Edit and then adding foomail.com in the list
of accepted cookies domains (which was empty).
