Here is how to set your cookie preferences:
Netscape Navigator 3: Select Network Preferences from the Options menu. From the Network Preferences menu, select the Protocols tab and modify your preference if you wish to be warned before accepting cookies.

AOL: If you are using AOL v3.0 or higher for Windows 95 or 98: Select Preferences from the Members menu. Click on the WWW icon and select Advanced. Modify your preference if you wish to be warned before accepting cookies.
If you are using the following AOL browsers, you will not be able to set cookie preferences since these browsers automatically accept cookies:
AOL v3.0 for Windows 3.0, using AOL's proprietary browser or AOL's version of Microsoft Internet Explorer v3.0;
AOL for the MAC, using AOL's version of Microsoft Internet Explorer 2.1.
All other earlier versions of AOL browsers do not support cookies, and therefore cannot authenticate you as a registered user on web sites that involve sending or receiving personal account information.
