     In your scenario, the parent site would need to send P3P compact
policies as well. There's no way for a site to send a policy which says
"please accept third-party cookies".

Hello all,

Please excuse for being a little OT, Im not implementing p3p user agents
or authoring tools. If there is a more suitable platform for this post
(p3p-users?) please advise :)

Our Scenario:

We manage a site that consists of a login page, that sets session
cookies. This site populates the main frame of a parent site. Now that
IE6 supports p3p it rejects or blocks cookies which our site is trying
to set (3rd party cookies).

I have played around with p3p policies on our site (the child site) and
IE recognises them, all good. But IE6 still rejects 3rd party cookies,
does the parent site need to have a p3p policy to cover the child sites
cookies? Some guidance would be greatly appreciated :)

Kind Regards,
