Shouldn't do.. I've never come across this.

Are you experiencing an error? and if so, what does the error report? It
may be something unrelated.. but noen of us can tell (well, I failed my
mind-reading classes anyway ;) ).

The only "error" that _should_ occur, is that if you rely on that
cookie, then something will fail if it's not present, if an _actual_
error occurs, then I suspect it's something within your actual code, not
the cookie setting itself =)
HTH.

Regards,

Ian

no if http client does not accept cookie there is no error indication, nor
any kind of information weathe the cookie has been accepted or not. Only
when you serve another page to him you can find out if cookie is present or
not.

Also there is no way to "persuade" the client to accept the cookie if he
does not want to.
