    Don't forget your own domain if you use autodiscover or mail.owndomain.co.uk

    Thats just for the outlook website on the internet! we don't use outlook, just the students insist on using poor email providers.

    wlxrs.com
    gfx.ms
    login.live.com
    shared.live.com
    imp.live.com
    imp.microsoft.com
    account.live.com
    c.live.com
    mail.live.com
    afx.ms

    p.s. Hotmail used to present attachments via IP addresses which may of changed or could of been ported across to Outlook - if you block IP address based URLs this would stop this.

    GLHF!

    Thanks all. The sub domains don't really matter as smoothwall will just block all subdomains. I'll add in the others. Why do they have to use so many domains!

    Yes I remember the days when hotmail used to use IP's which was a nightmare because I blocked web access via IP's because they students could get around our old webfilter like that.

    Are these not covered in the web email category, or something like that, within Smoothwall?

    Yeah I realised after I had posted that why on earth didn't I just apply an auth exception for the Email category.
