Outlook 2007 and 2010 - Connecting to Office 365 mailbox (Is it secure and encrypted by default)

Just a quick question...By default, connecting Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010 to a cloud mailbox, is it creating a secure connection or is Outlook transmitting the pwd in clear text?  Just curious if it created a secure connection by default or if I needed to go in and manually set that up.  Thanks in advance!

i have it setup with office 365, as long as that is the cloud type you are connecting too, its secure.  Not sure about other, but office365 & microsoftonline.com are both secure connections default

Yes, it's a mailbox with the Microsoft cloud (Office 365).  So I don't have to manually setup any type of encryption?  It's secure by default?

When I looked at the article it shows security settings in Outlook that are securing the connection however when I look at my settings in Outlook, the "encrypt data between...." is not checked and the "logon network security" is set to Anonymnous Auth.  

I would have to manually set that up, correct?  The connection that I have was just the default connection that gets created during the autodiscover setup...
