I spend most of my time using linux, so I use licq but I do have icq for
Windows as well (more of a legacy than anything else). I have the
2000b version. Anyway, where is this option? It doesn't seem to be under
"security" or "connections", other than some mention of allowing direct
connections to all users or just to those on your list (but nothing about
older clients). I want to know more so I can tell others how to disable it
than for my own personal use.
