Subject: Outlook 2003 listening on udp/3088

Hello,

I've just noticed (no, not by using tools which ship with Windows XP[1], thank you Bill), that
Outlook 2003 binds to UDP port 3088 on all interfaces and listens. Quick Googling for it
found no useful explanation.

Does anyone know what is this good for? Another open port on my (and thousands of others) Windows box
really does not help anything, at least when it comes to security. Anyway, I am using
desktop firewall for access control, but knowing what this is and how can it be disabled ;-)
will make my sleep a bit better.

Regards,

Ondra

PS: [1] ...netstat wouldn't do, it does not display pid (or something).
