The 'full' is the issue. IE6 reacts on compact policies that are
transported in the headers of the http-get response. So you would have
to configure your web-server accordingly. See the p3p-deployment guide
for more info how to do that:
http://www.w3.org/TR/p3pdeployment

You can see from the output of the validator whether it actually finds
the compact policy. Remember that the compact format is optional and
only implemented in IE.

Best,
