Hm, maybe I understand the question better now.  Let me rephrase it into
I think you might have meant:

2) When another client sends a Message to my client via the server, is
any way to tell which client the Message originated from?

The answer is yes, if the sending client added a string field to his
with the field name PR_NAME_SESSION.  It doesn't matter what string he
because the server checks for this special field name and if it exists,
server will automatically replace its string-value with the session ID
of the 
sending client.  (This was added to prevent people from "spoofing"
from other clients ... someone on BeShare had figured out how to hack
client so that they could put words into other peoples' mouths, which
was a 
great way to cause chaos :^))

So if you get a message from the server that has a PR_NAME_SESSION
field in it, you can be sure that the message is from the client
specified in 
that field.  If the message doesn't have a PR_NAME_SESSION string field 
(because the sender didn't add one), then there is no guaranteed way to
where it came from.
