But the questions begs that even though you can upload your F/B lists,
is there a method for legacy clients to access the info? As fas as I know the
F/B manager allways generates the lists from the Calendar files?
Last time Stuart worked on the manager we added some code that could dish
up "legacy/uploaded" lists uploaded into the cache via FTP/WebDav...
My knowledge of the subject is definitely outdated but as far as I can tell the
users will be able to upload their lists via FTP and nothing more? They
wont be able to read it back again...
