I still don't think you can do this. If the files are accessible via
http for viewing under any sort of reasonable layout, then I can obtain
them all pretty quickly, either with wget or a few minutes of scripting.

If you're going to let people view the files at all, why do you care how
they get them? The only thing that comes to mind is blocking access to
log comments and other metadata, in which case I'd suggest setting up a
hook script (or daily cron job) to keep an exported view current, and
then serve only that tree by http.

about Exchange Server next.
