Does Trillian support encryption?

I've installed Trillian on my office computer. Is there a way to encrypt the messages so that network sniffers/loggers etc. can't see the messages? If so, is that a setting somewhere?

    Hi - if you are talking to other Trillian users on the Astra network, messages are encrypted using SSL by default. This is also the case when using XMPP-based networks such as Jabber or Google Talk. Some versions of AIM also support SSL but it's not required in all cases. Hope this helps!
