ASP Sessions not working in Internet Explorer, but do work in Firefox

We have a bunch of websites running off of one of our servers, and all are functioning correctly except for one.  The problem with this one website seems to be that the session information does not save when going from one page to another (or even when you refresh the same page).  The site appears to be setup the same as the others, but for whatever reason this one just isn't working.  And to add to confusion, the site DOES work in Firefox, but not in Internet Explorer.

To see this in action I have created two pages:  SessionTest.asp and SessionEnabled.asp

Basically the SessionTest.asp page sets a session variable and then forwards you on to the SessionEnabled.asp page to check if it still exists on another page.

Try hitting the sessiontest.asp page with Internet Explorer and you can refresh the page and see a new session ID value every time the page reloads, but doing the same thing in FireFox keeps your original ID and sessions work as expected.

Please help... I have been banging my head on this for the past couple of days and I don't know what else to look at.
