My code is this simple...

<cfcookie name="source_id" value=#source_id# expires=#qrySourceDetails.expiration_date#>
<cfcookie name="source_id" expires=#Now()#>
<cfoutput>#IsDefined("cookie.source_id")#</cfoutput> <!--- Always returns "YES" --->

<cfcookie name="source_id" value=#source_id# expires=#qrySourceDetails.expiration_date#>
<cfcookie name="source_id" expires="Now">
<cfoutput>#IsDefined("cookie.source_id")#</cfoutput> <!--- Always returns "YES" --->

I have also tried...

<cfcookie name="source_id" value=#source_id# expires=#qrySourceDetails.expiration_date#>
<cfcookie name="source_id" expires=Now> <!--- Notice no quotes around Now --->
<cfoutput>#IsDefined("cookie.source_id")#</cfoutput> <!--- Always returns "YES" --->

I am at a loss why this is happening?

yes tacobell is correct say for  eg: in a logout scenario, mostly what i do is

when the user clicks on logout,
say i rtake him to a page called logout.cfm

in which i write

<cfcookie name = "source_id"  value = ""  expires = "NOW">    

<script language="javascript">
function LogOut()
{
  window.location.replace("Default.cfm");
}
setTimeout("LogOut()",500);

</script>


and after this i take him to the default page after a timeout, this is just to make sure

else you can just write
<CFLOCATION URL=""Default.cfm" ADDTOKEN="No">
