List of email websites

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.

There are all kinds ways to compile that information.  For example:
Will give you a starting point of the tope 100 from their perspective of "free" email sites.

Your best option would be something like Websense

If you have the time to configure it then something like 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.
