Hi All,

I want to block our users from accessing personal email websites on their laptops.

Is there a list of URLs anywhere - e.g. top 100?

I plan to add a HOST file entry, so it redirect them to a warning message.


Thanks
D

Your best option would be something like Websense

If you have the time to configure it then something like http://www.untangle.com/ would work well.

We have a proxy server to manage the content, however they switch it off.

I'm not allowed to enforce it as they complain they can't access "hotels".  I do reapply it using group policy, but know for a fact some people just uncheck it and carry on.

Could you perhaps use OpenDNS and block web based email services?

The problem with a "top 100" list is that practically every ISP offers some form of email.  That would be a lot more than 100.

There are all kinds ways to compile that information.  For example:  http://www.100topsciencesites.com/?cat=Free%20Email
Will give you a starting point of the tope 100 from their perspective of "free" email sites.
