dropdowns on some IE browsers don't refresh from cache

    I have a dataset that is put into a dropdown. The dataset is cached on the
    server (we program in .NET to do the cache) once a day on the server so we
    don't have to hit the db again and again for names of employess -- which
    doesn't change that much.

    On Monday a new employee was added to the system. Understandably they
    didn't appear in the dropdown on Monday because the data is cached -- and
    the cache is only refreshed once a day.

    Today (Wednesday) we noticed that on some peoples' browsers, they still
    don't see that new employee in the dropdown list. But on my machine we do.
    We all have IE 6. I even had the other people delete their temporary
    internet files etc. They still don't see the new person. Its obviously in
    the cache on the server, because I see the person on my machine. But it
    doesn't appear in some other browsers. Any ideas?

  2. that is too weird...what happens if the person reboots it machine? also are
    the IE settings identical between your machine and that other person's? the
    other issue could be your proxy server where it is holding its cache
    regardless of user settings. just a thought
