I have Windows 98SE and IE 6.0. When I go to IE Properties and click Security, it shows I am set in Medium Custom. But when I try to open an article in the Washington Post, I get a messge that I am not allowing cookies, and telling me to set it at Medium Custom, which is where it already is.

Anybody have any idea what is wrong?

Also, when I get a HOTN email telling me someone has replied to a post I am subscribed to, and I click on the URL to see that reply, and then type my own new reply, I keep getting taken to the log in window even after I have logged in and gotten the Welcome, grandpaw7 message. I have been told that this may also involve a cookies problem.

When I go to HOTN by typing the URL in the address bar at the bottom, I don't have the above problem, although I used to (so that I sometimes had to open a new HOTN account and log on through it).

Thanks, grandpaw7

You can add or remove a sites cookies (or allow/deny) by going to Privacy in IE options. Go to Privacy/Web Sites & set the cookies for the site how you want it.

I'll keep that in mind. I forgot that I had already gone there and set HOTN for Always Allow, so I guess the problem I described with accessing HOTN is not cookies related.

I do still wonder why the Washington Post site tells me that it detects that I am not allowing cookies and to set Privacy at Medium when it is already set at that.
