Getting a .NET Passport

Along with your Internet connection, you need a Microsoft .NET Passport to run Messenger, even to chat within your local area network. Your Passport is Microsoft’s way of identifying you uniquely on the Internet. It’s free and requires only an email address.

If you’ve already obtained a Passport and linked it to your user account, you can skip this section. Windows sometimes nags you to set up a Passport (Figure 15.1), or if you open Messenger, the .NET Passport Wizard appears when you try to sign in. You also can launch the wizard yourself.
