Hi All,

We are trying to block the new chat option in Yahoo mail and i cannot seem to find out what particular host/domain we need to block this. We want to allow the users to access yahoo mail and the yahoo website but just want to block the chat, which as i mentioned is now integrated into their new webmail site.

any ideas how to get this done. We have successfully blocked the gmail chat using rhe hosts file method on the isa and this is working fine.


Ash.

For anyone who want to block the chat part in the new yahoo mail.

Block access to the following:

httpcs.msg.yahoo.com
httpcs.msg.yahoo.co.uk - although i think this one redirects to the .com one so the above entry should be sufficient.

When you block this yahoo chat will take some time to load only to have the status of unavailable and users can't change it to online.

Ash.
