are dates not stored as milliseconds?

If so, adding 365 will be adding just under half a second to the expiry date.

could this be the problem?

Try it. And say what do you get?

<%
Response.Write Request.Cookies ("transp")
Response.Cookies ("transp").Expires = -1
%>

this is the error:
Cookies object error 'ASP 0200 : 80004005'

Out of Range 'Expires' attribute

/orange/sa.asp, line 3

The date given for 'Expires' precedes Jan 1, 1980 or excedes Jan 19, 2038, 3:14:07 GMT.

I have the same problem with this cookies, there are working fine till something happens (maybe the limit of 30 cookies per Domain?). I realized in Netscape there is no problem to read cookies.  I'm sure i didn't make a mistake. Yes has something to do with the name or so, renaming helps.  I realized as well is only on my mashine where I developed my scripts, on other machines works fine.
