    Please help, this is horribly annoying!! I have used hotmail for the past decade. Since I downloaded Lion, every time I try to go to MSN I get a notice... " This is a non-secure form. This form will be sent in a way that is not secure. Are you sure you want to send it? Then I must choose the send or cancel box. First of all , what does THAT mean and how can I get rid of that notice?

    It means the communication for submitting your password is sent as clear text over the internet to their servers so anyone in a position to intercept the data stream could read it. Microsoft has be criticized multiple times for this.

    So...

    Ok I figured out how to get rid of that notice if I would choose to do so. So to be clear, you are saying that my passwords and private info, could be seen by someone?:eek:
