MSN provides free e-mail and instant messaging services for registered users. You can access your messages and view history from any computer with an Internet connection because none of your information is actually stored on your personal computer or laptop. All records of your conversations and e-mail messages are stored on the MSN network. As with any login, you'll need your e-mail address and password to access your message history.
