you can't as MS Messenger will default back to standard ports (http/https) if it can't get through on the proprietry ports.

sorry, what I meant to say was that you can't block it using ports.

you will need some form of proxy that filters and you can block it that way.

Try blocking on firewall MSN port (1683) and redirecting petitions with destination messenger.hotmail.com to one valid IP in the network. At second point, I add an entry on host file that redirect messenger.hotmail.com to a file server.

But the problem is that are a lot of web messengers, to complete this, need to filter this url, otherwise, can conect to messenger using one of them.
