If you're receiving an error message that says, 'In order to log in to Gmail, your browser must be set to allow JavaScript to set cookies,' we suggest the following:
  1. Open Internet Explorer, and click Tools along the top of your browser window.
  2. Select Internet Options... and click the Security tab at the top of the dialog box.
  3. Click Trusted sites, and then click Sites...
  4. Enter the following sites in the Add this Web site to the zone field:
    • https://www.google.com
    • https://mail.google.com
    • http://b.mail.google.com

Next, please clear your browser's cache. To clear your cache, visit the Internet Explorer Help Center for instructions.

Close all open browser windows, restart Internet Explorer, and sign in to Gmail. If you're unable to sign in, we suggest removing all of your trusted sites in IE, then signing in again.

If you still can't sign in, try signing in securely by changing the URL to https://mail.google.com.
