If i do not hit the Logoff/ Exit button and just close the browser, the sessions table shows me as logged on. Is this OK? If i hit the logoff/exit then the sessions table also gets updated accordingly.

Yes, that is normal, and is okay.

Now if admin moves to a mailbox, there is no exit provision there. This means that the admin moving in to a mailbox and then moving out the sessions table will have the data there in the table till the session expires.

Yup, but an admin going through a user's inbox shouldn't be happening too often how should it? Wink

Also when a user logs in and reaches the home page the sessions_data is:

'page',undef,'cookie','1','do',undef

why is page undef? when the page that the user is really on is home.htm

I believe page and do are only set if they are passed into Gossamer Mail.

What ideally should be the session expire time set to? Any 'practical norms'

I am asking this wrt the provision of displaying "Users Logged On" on login page which works as per the globals uggested by Adrian@brewt.

This should be set to a period of time which you would think a user will idle for (say, while composing an email). hotmail's default is 2 hours, Gossamer Mail's default is 4 hours. So anywhere between there sounds good to me.
