I write CGI applications using Delphi, I write a local E-Mail server, every thing is good, it works more than a month without any problems. Some times when the user dial to the server and when he logged on, the cookies cann't be set, this problem appear in some computers for a different period, I think my CGI cann't set the cookies in some clients, although it can set this cookies befor. When this problem appear the user cann't loggin for about a day, after that he can logged again. In the browser we enable cookies, is it a bug in the Browser, IIS, or in my CGI app?

Please help

I didn't set domain cookies niether path. What is the meaning of persistent or non-persistent?

I encounter this problem once, I use IE 4 Win98, but now it is working now, my friend had this problem he is using Windows 2000 and it's browser.
When I use this E-Mail in our lan it works fine, but always cookies problems are in dial-up users.

Thanks

Unlike persistent cookies which are stored on your hard drive, non-persistent cookies are completely removed from your computer when you close your web browser.
