I have a question regarding cookies. Assume, a browser receives some cookies from ABC.com. So, is it possible that ABC.com can read all cookies associated with browser (machine)? Or, it can read only the cookies that belong to it?

ABC.com will only be sent the cookies for ABC.com
Also, if the cookie includes path information, such as /forum, it will only be sent to that context.

For the complete cookie rules, do a search for "rfc2965"
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
