Section 5.8.  The answer is "maybe".

However, I agree that you shouldn't be subverting your employer's 
policies.  Also, I would be worried about an employer that blocked 
logging - most legitimate businesses, these days, are very heavily into 
logging.  Blocking logging makes me think of the final hours in front of 
Enron's shredders.

Incidentally, sametime support in Pidgin seems to use a third party 
library and that library is where the real knowledge of the protocol 
will lie.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
