I am setting a cookie in ASP like this:
 response.Cookies("auctionsession") = randomSessionVar
 Response.Cookies("auctionsession").Expires = Date() + 15
 Response.Cookies("auctionsession").Domain = ".oorahauction.org"

Then when they log out I try to delete the cookie this way
            response.Cookies("auctionsession") = ""
                         Response.Cookies("auctionsession").Expires = Date() -1
but my cookie isn't going away or clearing.
Am I missing something?

Note that 'Response.Cookies' MUST be done before any other non-ASP output.  You can Not set or delete a cookie after any page content has been sent.  It MUST be done before that.
