In IE options, I tried setting my slider to accept all cookies - but that
doesn't work (I can't access Hotmail). I must have inadvertently set
something else to block cookies. Can anyone tell me what it might be?
NOTE: I have a firewall installed. Thanks.........

The firewall might have a setting or an option for cookies.
Change it to unblock incoming cookies.
