Our school recently installed websense blocking software on our school network. Unfortunatly, the way they have it currently configured, it blocks alot, even things that are of educational value (for instance, the MIT website, and various other useful websites)>

One if the biggest problems is they blocked gmail, which is the primary method for filesharing that we have. I was wondering if it was possible to gain access specifically to gmail.com. I have already tried using various workaround addresses that have worked in the past (with bess), including

https://mail.google.com
https://www.gmail.com
https://gmail.google.com
etc.

Please do bear in mind that due to the way the network is configured, i cannot install any software (such as an HTTP tunneler) on my school account.

If you have any questions that will help me to figure this out, please ask away.
