TMG 2010 - How to block connection from "Mac Mail" to Exchange Server

Hi,

On our TMG 2010, I would like to block access to our ExchangeWebServices for Mac OS users. I searched the internet and found that you can use HTTP Signatures, to use "Client agent" information to block a connection.
For example "Client agent: Mac OS X/10.8.5 (12F45) CalendarAgent/57"

I have not much experiences with TMG and hoped that someone can help me out hier.

Any comments are appreciated.

Thanks
Joerg

We are using exchange 2010 and I'm aware of the possibility of EWS access control. The problem is from outside. We have users that are using Mac mail at home and the mac (for example the calendar) tries to contact the exchange mailbox with the anonymous account and after few tries, our account policy locks the AD account of that mailbox.
Therefore my idea was to block those mac client agent mentioned above.

Yes this is exactly what I'm trying to do, but I'm not sure what to fill in the "Signature" Field.
I hoped someone has experience with Signatures Filtering.
