According to our Windows guy that's been working with ADFS, the only 
access method that does not send Microsoft the username/password to 
proxy is Outlook Web Access. IMAP, Activesync, MAPI, ..., he says all of 
those proxy the password. I haven't had the time, motivation, or stomach 
;) to review the Microsoft documentation in detail myself, but that's 
the word from our Windows group.
