You have to love Network Solutions.   First they overcharge for domain 
registrations, and now they want to lock you in even if you have 
previously told them not to do so.  No wonder I use godaddy,com.

Dear Valued Network Solutions Customer: 	

ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) has 
changed the domain name transfer policy for all accredited domain name 
service providers. We are concerned that this policy change puts your 
domain name at greater risk for being "slammed" (fraudulently 
transferred). The prior policy allowed you to expressly approve a 
transfer request with your current domain name service provider before 
any transfer would occur. The new policy, however, eliminates this 
express approval safeguard, removing an additional protection against 
unauthorized transfer requests.

To further enhance the security of the domain names you have registered 
with Network Solutions and to protect you against unauthorized or 
fraudulent transfers, we will activate our free Domain Protect service 
for all of your domain names beginning Oc tober18,2004.BR
Our Domain Protect feature blocks domain name transfers until you, or 
your designated contact, turn the feature "Off." This step allows you to 
control the "transferability" of your domain names, and provides 
protection against "domain hijackers."

If you have turned Domain Protect "Off" in the past, we will reactivate 
this feature by October 31, 2004. Domain Protect is quick and easy to 
manage through your Network Solutions account. Simply login 
<http://info1.networksolutions.com/h/3BIX/PQ0D/MQ/RL2ARW> and click on 
the domain name you want to change. On the Domain Details page, you can 
turn Domain Protect "On" or "Off."

If you have concerns about this transfer policy change, you can contact 
ICANN directly at icann at icann.org <mailto:icann at icann.org>.
