sorry, I was wrong ...
all the $session in my previous post should be $cookie... (I typed the wrong

I think the domain is not the one that cause the problem...
remember that I refer to the same page (but sometimes success and the other

What did u mean by "unless you use the right parameters in setcookie()"
Please more detail (I want to know if I miss something in setcookie

Thanx a lot
