    Whenever I go to www.target.com, I get message:
    " your browser isn't supported. Upgrade to one of the
    latest versions listed below to get the most out of your Target.com
    experience"

    I'm running Internet Explorer 8
    version 8.0.6001.18702
    Update version: 0

    Can anyone shed some light on what's happening here?

  2. I'm running Win XP Pro, SP3, and IE8. I can go to target.com without any
    trouble.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Something is amiss in the way my IE8 is
    identifying itself to the to the Target website. I know there's a header
    ident
    that's sent to the website saying I'm running this version browser but I
    don't
    remember where its located so I can check it.
    All other site seems ok..
    Any ideas?
    Thanks again

    Your posting header says that you're using OE6.
    Doesn't IE8 install a new version of OE? Maybe you're
    using a proxy? Or you have script disabled? Or you
    actually have IE6?

    In any case, if you want to check the UA string,
    see here:

    http://www.jsware.net/jsware/iewacky.php5#uagent

    (That page/topic will also show you the UA string
    you're sending if you have script enabled.)

  5. I'm also posting with OE6. OE is Outlook Express, this is different than IE,
    which is Internet Explorer. Apples and oranges. More like apples and laundry
    soap, but the idea is that OE and IE are different as night and day.
    Different as windows and doors.

    This is my UA String, with and without script it doesn't
    change. I don't see anything wrong..www.Target
    still don't like it:
    Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; Mozilla/4.0
    (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) ; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR
    2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.30; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.648; .NET CLR
    3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET4.0C)

    Thanks for the site address. its been so that I
    didn't even remember what the header was
    called.
    OE is the mail handler program. I don't think it
    has any play here.

    In
    Actually, not so different. As both IE and OE uses what is commonly
    called the IE rendering engine or Trident. And Trident is normally
    thought of as coming with an IE install. Thus OE will fail without IE
    being installed and depends on Trident being there. For example, the
    security settings for IE also effects OE as well.

    In the past, with IE4 through IE6... both versions of OE and IE had to
    match or it wouldn't work at all (I could be wrong about IE4 and OE4).
    This all changed with IE7 and IE8. As OE6 will also work with IE6, IE7,
    and IE8. And I have no idea if OE6 can work with IE9 or not. AFAIK
    nobody ever got this to work yet. IE9 uses Trident v5 and at least IE7
    and IE8 uses Trident v4.

  9. Doesn't matter. OE6 works perfectly fine with IE8. IE8 does not change the
    version of OE, and one cannot devine the version of IE based on the header
    of a post in a newsgroup where the newsclient is OE.
