Yes, options do get stored. I have created identity, changed filter and display settings etc. and
after I login and logout the settings are still there with both browsers IE and NS. The only setting
that doesn't get stored is the language. Also the mainpage for horde where the login screen is
should be default to Finnish and when I access it with NS it is in Finnish but with IE it is in
English when it should be defaulted to Finnish.

Yes, I don't get it either. I have tried different places where there is IMP and Horde in use and
all of those work fine with Finnish start page etc. but with our own server it doesn't accept
Finnish or any other language besides English for that matter. I have tried both Finnish and
Swedish. When I login and change the language from Finnish to Swedish it doesn't change from
English. I have to change it to English first and then to Swedish or Finnish and then the first page
is with the right language. But after I click on something it's back to English. I don't get it.
With Netscape I can choose any language and it changes correctly.

If you need I can e-mail you address for the setup and also a username and password for testing.

I appreciate any help.
