Fool server into thinking it's IE6

    Hi all,

    I'm running IE7. I access a web app that apparently mis-identifies my
    browser (it complains that I'm not running IE 5.5 or higher). Is there a
    way to fool the server into thinking I'm running IE6? Alternately, is there
    a way (short of Virtual PC) to run IE6 side-by-side with IE7?

    TIA - Bob

    Hi Bob:

    "When you use Internet Explorer 7 to visit a Web site, you may receive
    error messages that state that you do not have the most current version
    of Internet Explorer"

    The IE7pro toolbar has a convenient way to do this:
