I've been trying to get to my Gmail account but I get the message that says:

Your browser's cookie functionality is turned off. Please turn it on.

Which part of Internet Options for Internet Explorer do I need to fix?

Thanks.

try here, ~67 :flowers: or at that same spot, Internet options-->Privacy. I don't use IE much, but it should be set right... mine may be a little "tight"... even if it's just a backup to use for updates and online scans. :thumbsup:

Hey, thanks Phawgg. I knew it was a Privacy issue in Internet Options but wasn't sure which setting needed to be changed. As it turns out, I had google and gmail all 'always block' on the cookie settings. I decided awhile back to take more control of my cookie settings since one website can generously give you all the cookies they want. Plus, I no longer have those 4 items in my temp internet folder that wouldn't delete unless in Safe Mode (prior thread of mine here at BC).
Anyway, thanks.
P.S. Please check your gmail account, Phawgg.
P.S.S. For those of you who have gmail accounts and like me (lol) message me your addy. Shibby gave me the invite for gmail awhile ago but don't have any friends yet, :thumbsup: .

:inlove: You've got friend coast-to-coast my dear! I have a g-mail notifier that one of our English friends tipped me off to. I'll send it to you. :flowers: I need to re-install it myself, I miss it being discreetly in the lower right of my Firefox browser windows letting me know the instant an email (or actually Gmail :thumbsup: ) arrives. Then I just do what you've suggested I do: CHECK YOUR EMAIL I don't use the messenger, I don't use the Outlook Express, I don't use Outlook itself and I'd like to bundle all those MSN things up and quarantine them. :trumpet:

I'm with you, I never use Outlook Express. I don't care for the program because it has too many issues and I never give out my ISP email addresses anyway. All you newbies, PLEASE DO NOT do that unless you REALLY know the person.
Phawgg, I look forward to the notifier thingy! Thanks!

I heard Gmail account is only by invitation. Its not open for all like www.homemaster.net or www.postmaster.co.uk. You can secure a lot of information pertaining to Gmail from the discussion forum of www.homemaster.net.

Thank you jaik, I joined homemaster after your mention. I think it's a very good deal at zero dollars. I look forward to having membership there. :thumbsup:

I've done the same thing. I think it looks great. It's free. Spam free, too. And the appearance is awesome without all the extra junk. So far, I like it. I'll have to give it out and recommend it to everyone.
Thanks for passing it along, JAIK.
