Lee:

Since you compact policy has an ONL token, ie6 _requires_ you specify the either the `i' or `o' modifier for your purpose/receipient tokens IVA and SAM. So, you'll also need to provide an opt- mechanism for that cookie. You should read this information on ie6:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnsecure/html/ie6privacyfeature.asp

If you are just doing pseudonymous analysis, you might want to define a different policy. Since I have no idea what you're doing, I can't give an example, but the above link explains exactly why ie6 won't except 3rd party cookies at the default setting.

Hello,

I'm creating a website traffic analysis tool for use by my hosting
customers.  This tool is similar to hitbox or webtrendslive.  In order
to track visitors as they move about a website, as well as determine if
someone is a new or returning visitor, I need to place a cookie.

I've added a compact policy to the HTTP headers of the page that drops
the cookie, but IE6 still blocks it 100% of the time.  Can anyone give
me an example of a compact policy that IE6 will accept for third party
cookies that are used strictly for analysis purposes?

The page I'm using that drops the cookie is
http://www.webstorefast.com/functions/tracker.asp.  It can be seen in
use at http://www.treasurengifts.com as the "powered by" image in the
left border.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Lee Phillips
