How can I force pidgin to use only encrypted connections when using MSN chat? I'm on Ubuntu 10.04

It isn't encrypted, you can use the off-the-record plugin that's available as a third-party plugin for Pidgin. FYI Off the record is available for Gaim, Adium and also as a compiled binary for Pidgin on Windows.

I'm not sure if MSN is encrypted but if you can use and get your buddies to use the Off the Record plugin your communications will be encrypted and also not understandable to potential intercepting parties.
