Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

If it remembers the password, it won't have to ask for information. I have never used MSN, but in Dial up networking, you can select MSN icon and go to connection settings.  Then you can unselect prompt for information before dialing.

I am assuming the MSN logon box come up when you start your machine.  

Try the following:
Go into control panel, double click on Internet icon
Select the tab named Connection
Select the options Connect to the Internet Using Local Area Network
Click OK

This will set you up so that you always need to go to My Computer-Dialup Networking-MSN icon to dial to MSN before you access Internet.

Do you have the latest version of MSN (2.5)?  Make sure you do before you do anything.

I know in outlook 98 you go to tools-accounds-properties-servers and it should have your email accound information. Outlook Express is the same.  Make sure you don't have "Log on using secure password authentication" checked.
