Not that I'm worried, but I 'IM' with a freind (at work) and our conversations sometimes get a bit 'off-color'. Friday night, she was telling her husband about one of the jokes I said and he got concerned that her IM's may be 'monitored' by IT. Isn't IM a direct connection to and from each system? I know the programs have a special port through the firewall to do this, so it's not like email where her IT dept. can view incoming messages. Is this true??
