I'm running Norton Firewall. Everytime I start MSN Messenger, Norton pops up a message that restricted information is being sent to I know the restricted info is my email address because if I remove this from my list of confidential information, Messenger starts without any pop up messages.

I tried to go to Internet Zone Control inside Norton Firewall and add as a trusted network address, however, the alert messages still pop up. Apparently I also need to add the subnet mask for Firewall to allow my email address to pass to Messenger without popping up a warning messages. Does anyone know what the subnet mask is for MSN Messenger? Will adding that fix the problem?
