Tried that already. At least, I hope I guessed at least one of the 
possible identifiers correct: MSIE6.0, MSIE 6.0, MSIE/6.0
Unfortunately no different. I also tried to define my cookiejar as a 
MSIE cookiejar. However, since I'm working under Linux, I'm not sure 
that even works, even though there was no complain:

import ClientCookie, urllib

cj = ClientCookie.MSIECookieJar()

self.opener = 
         self.opener.addheaders = [('User-Agent', 'MSIE6.0')]
# set login parametes ...
         parameters = urllib.urlencode({"~login" : "XX", "~password" : 

         f ='https:myhost', parameters)
