Creating .NET Passport

Each user on a computer must have a .NET Password to access all MSN Internet Access web sites and use MSN related software, such as MSN Explorer and Windows Messenger. You use the .NET Passport Wizard to help you quickly associate a .NET Password to any existing e-mail address or to create while you sign up for a free MSN or Hotmail e-mail account. Once you create a .NET Passport, you can quickly sign in at any participating web site by clicking the .NET Passport button or you can sign in when you start MSN related software, such MSN Explorer and Windows Messenger. When you finish working with a participating web site, you can click to sign out.
