Many thanks for your speedy reply. I had previously read through the 
relevant FAQ and saw mention about the debug log and how to set it up. I 
wrote you first because I was wondering whether someone could hack into 
a transmission and spy on typed conversations.

I am using Pidgin 2.5.6,  Windows XP Home on a home phone line with a 
DSL modem and cabled router with firewall. For IM I connect through MSN 
in order to converse with a relative who has a MSN address but can also 
converse through my Yahoo address with Yahoo addresses. I have only 2 
buddies, both of whom are family. Totally 'vanilla' in that we use only 
text, no file transfers or plugins on my end.
