Yes it is a misunderstanding.  I am on win2k with outlook 2k NOT KDE, so I 
only have local win2k workstations attaching to this server.  There are no 
sniffers, and if there are the infrastructure has worse fears.  In an ideal 
world there would be no remote access via FTP.... but this is the real world 
with real users and real admins who are not going to give everyone access to 
the same free busy lists.
