    A senior Microsoft executive has told a European parliamentary
    committee that the company does not encrypt its server-to-server data
    communications.  Dorothee Belz, EMEA VP for Legal and Corporate
    Affairs, made the remark when answering a question from Claude Moraes,
    MEP, during a meeting at the European Parliament on Monday.
    "Generally, what I can say today is server-to-server transportation is
    generally not encrypted," she said. "This is why we are currently
    reviewing our security system.
