ONElist requires Cookies to access this part of the ONElist web site.
cookies cannot be set correctly, then ONElist cannot tell who you are.
We switched to a cookie based system for two reasons. First, and
most importantly, there was a security problem with the old system.
Malicious people could grab people's email address and password
with the old system. Also, the new system is more convenient for our
users. Once you have logged into the ONElist web site, you do not have
to log in again.
ONElist uses two cookies; one to remember your email address, and one
to remember your password. A cookie is just some information that we
send to your browser. Your browser remembers this information, and
everytime you return to our web site, this information is sent back to
us. A cookie cannot be used to extract information from your system.
You can have ONElist remove the cookies when you are done, by clicking
on the Log Out link on the menu bar on the left.

There can be several reasons why your computer didn't accept the cookies
that we sent.
