Block webmail sites with ISA2004?

My director wants to block webmail access from internal clients. He asked specifically for blocking AOL, Yahoo, Hotmail, Comcast, Verizon, but I know more will be coming.

Is there an easy way to accomplish this? The only way I can think of is to get an account on those sites, check the URL's they use for mail reading, and blocking them. I expect that to take a while, so if there is an easier way I would love to know it.

Thanks for any help,

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

trying to do this in ISA alone will be a nightmare. to do this effectively you need an add-on. GFI web monitor would be a good candidate.
