After upgrading to IE8, I get  "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" when trying to access our intranet site on port 993.
This worked fine on IE7.  Is there something in IE8 that causes this to be blocked?  I am not running any firewall  or port blocking on this XP box.

Hello ceresit,

Verify that you have set the user agent string on your intranet site

You can use the User Agen Picker addon
