Jocelyn_r64, as you mentioned, it would be a really difficult job. anway, just a thought coming into my mind, if you have a powerful gateway which supports context based content filtering, you may define a pattern to recognize email headers in http streams, and blcok or drop the suspected packets. of course, even with the most advanced AI technology, we still can not 100 percent guarantee taht you can blcok all the traffic that should be blocked. regards, bbao

some software may do that, according to their prodcut desciptions, but it seems you have to define the pattern by yourself if possible.

if you think firmware as one kind of software, then CBAC is it:
