    I'm having problems with cookies again..... I'm creating a cookie inside a COM object that Is created in an asp page like this:set objThis = Server.CreateObject("MyComObject.Object1")Later, it is called like this:objThis.VerifyUser(strUsername, strPassword)Inside the VerifyUser routine, a cookie is set like this (if the username and password are correct):rp.Cookies("AUTHCOOKIE") = strAuthString rp.Cookies("AUTHCOOKIE").Domain = myDomain.com My problem is: I can't seem to delete the cookie when I want to log off the user! I've tried this:Response.Cookies("AUTHCOOKIE") = ""and this:Response.Cookies("AUTHCOOKIE").Expires = DateAdd("d",-10,now) But nothing seems to work. No matter what I do (short of closing the browser) the cookie is still there (response.write Request.Cookies("AUTHCOOKIE") writes out a value!). HELP!!!! TIA,

    OK. Here's some code (THIS DOES NOT WORK!): Testing Log In
    Test
    Log Off
    What am I doing wrong? Why does the cookie persist even after setting it's expires property to ten days ago? Thanks,

    OK. I got it. To delete the cookie:Response.Cookies("AUTHCOOKIE").Domain = "myDomain.com" Response.Cookies("AUTHCOOKIE").Expires = DateAdd("d",-10,now)This works. Cheers,
