Hi Justin,
Maybe I'm not reading your mail correctly, but I have the feeling your 
mixing some things up here.

Apparently you can log in on TYPO3 4.2.0, but not on 4.2.2. Did you 
upgrade 4.2.0 to 4.2.2 and did the problems start at this point? Or are 
you running both versions on separate sites?

Problems with logging in usually have their cause in database issues, 
JavaScript being turned off in the browser, or cookies not being 
accepted for some reason. By default any halfway recent version of IE is 
set to function correctly with TYPO3, except maybe when you're trying to 
use IE from a Windows Server product where it's very much locked down by 

What I'd like to know is if you can log in to 4.2.2 using a browser 
other than IE. If not, the problem is most likely with your TYPO3 
installation (check the database!). If you can log in, then there's 
probably some setting in IE that's causing trouble.. like cookies or 

Personally I haven't been able to reproduce your issue on a clean 4.2.2 
installation using IE.

With regards,

PS. If you upgraded from 4.2.0 to 4.2.2 you did perform a test before 
you went live with it, right?
