I was able to use Gmail's "standard view" since establishing my account with the service; however, after cleaning a number of things off my computer to free up space I lost the ability to use the standard view.  I get the message:

"Gmail requires ActiveX controls to be enabled"

I follow the recommended settings in IE 6.0 w/SP2 but continue to get the error.  I've used another site to test the functionality of ActiveX and the broswer tests fine.

Greetings, JimmyJoeM !

Log out of Gmail. Clear your cookies and temporary internet files.  Log back into Gmail with alternate address https://mail.google.com/mail/s/

war1,

Sorry for the delay.  Unfortunately you suggestion did not help.  Subsequently my credit card expiration date passed and EE would not let me in until I updated my profile.  

I have resolved this ActiveX/Gmail problem with a recently updated answer received from a Google search.  Link is below:
