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?

You'll have to navigate away from the page first, if you look up cookies int he cf documents it will tell you why and how, its really helpful..

<cfcookie name="source_id" expires=Now> <!--- Notice no quotes around Now --->
<cflocation url="somepage.cfm">

And on somepage.cfm you have
<cfoutput>#IsDefined("cookie.source_id")#</cfoutput> <!--- Always returns "YES" --->

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">

Hart
