Is it possible to use the WebBrowser control in a way that when multi instances of my app (with this control) calls the same website it knows to "indepedently" handle cookies for each app instance?  For example, if i have multi Yahoo emails, is it possible to have several instances of my app running so i can log into each of these emails at the same time?  Since IE stores all cookies in the same area i figure my app (being IE as well) is actually overwriting previous cookies estab. from prev instances of my app that are running.  Is there a way to alter this path area (where the cookies are stored) for EACH of my running instances?

Thanks

Unfortunately, mcrider is right.  Because it is an IE component, it acts the exact same as if it were an independently ran Instance of Internet Explorer.  Therefore, it uses the same cookies, settings, etc.  One possible solution might be to check the url.  Many sites that use cookies, have a secondary method of data transfer.  try turning off your cookies in your normal IE App, and see what Yahoo Mail, or whichever site it is you want, responds.  If it works, check the url, and decipher what they're passing thru...  Hope this helps.
