[Lynx-dev] lynx_cookies issue, or perhaps lynx.cfg

Hi folks,
Let me ask this carefully so it makes some sense.
I am not exactly sure what comprises a computer cookie, for example, if the ip address is noted.
Nor am I sure where lynx goes to look for the cookie file itself.
Still, here is the situation.
Shellworld, where I do most of my lynx work has entirely changed its machine and servers. A new ip address everything.
Although I have my old lynx_cookies file,  and can edit it.
gmail for example is not finding or resetting its own cookies.
I am not sure if there is something in the lynx.cfg file that addresses the lynx_cookies file location, or if my using my bookmark for gmail is seeking the cookie based on the old ip address or what. Still every time I check my mail now, I must log in anew, no cookie set as previously.
Where do I start directing the Shellworld administrator  to fix the issue?
