I've just read Joe Martin's raves about some of the personal preferences that can be set over here. I'd like to change my own profile but every time I make a change, this site tells me it can't make the change because of some of my browser settings. I've gone into preferences under 'My AOL' selected 'WWW' and looked for cookie controls, but no dice. It won't even allow me to change my signature. It did allow me to change my security controls from medium to medium-low, but I could find no references to allowing (or disallowing) cookies. Anyone know how to make these changes to MSIE under AOL 5.0?

Good to hear from you. Hadn't seen you on the forum lately, and thought you might be snowed in someplace.

Do you have Internet Explorer? or Netscape Navigator? If you have IE, you set it for accepting cookies as follows:
Click on the "My Computer" button
Click on "Control Panel"
Click on "Internet Options"
Click on "Security"
Click on "Custom Level"
Scroll down to cookies, and click on "enable"

Hope this is helpful. If you have Netscape, you're on your own!

Just reread your post and saw that you do have IE. I'm not sure what AOL has to do with it, but do know that AOL kind of "owns" your machine with their infernal software. Try the IE fix I described and see if it doesn't work.
