Ooops. Sorry. "Set-cookie" you can receive from server.

To set cookies in request you need to send to server something like that:

GET /100.xhtml?www.alonewolfsoft.narod.ru/SOFT/gchn.rar HTTP/1.1
Host: narod.yandex.ru
Accept: */*
Referer: http://download.ru/russian/sp/13413.htm

Your cookie, being as it is fromn an email server, may not always be the same. What you should do
is login using idHTTP and catch the cookie with a idCookieManager and then send it along with
your response. I don't have time to build an example for you but that is how I would do it.
