I would like to know a way to kill the SiteMinder session. My users does not log off from a protected website they just close the browser. When they try to used the forgotten password feature of IdentityMinder they receive a message that they are not authorize because it try to impersonate the forgotten password feature with the user that just close the browser.

I have try to include several META tags that you suggest on the web site but not of them works.

&ltMETA HTTP-EQUIV="cache control" CONTENT="no-cache">
&ltMETA HTTP-EQUIV="pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
&ltMETA HTTP-EQUIV="Set-Cookie" CONTENT="SMSESSION=;expires=Wednesday, 1-Jan-70 09:00:01 GMT;;path=/">
&ltMETA HTTP-EQUIV="Set-Cookie" CONTENT="SMONDENIEDREDIR=;expires=Wednesday, 1-Jan-1970 09:00:01 GMT;;path=/">
&ltMETA HTTP-EQUIV="Set-Cookie" CONTENT="FORMCRED=;expires=Wednesday, 1-Jan-1970 09:00:01 GMT;;path=/">

The solution should work for several web browsers
