Just got an e-mail from them about this.

Anyone used it? It's free.

No, but not a bad idea after the troubles with AIM.

I wrote an instant messenger that is totally secure.

At least, it will be until people start using it.

I would imagine that messages go through unencrypted and with IP addresses laid bare for the hacking world to see. At a guess. Not that I'm an expert, or have even researched this even a little bit.

Who cares? All IMs are spam anyway.
