I would assume, as Bret has already said that you use some sort of IP
firewall and gateway?  I seem to remember somewhere along the line that
it is possible to log things going out through firewalls to certain IP
addresses or using certain ports.  I know they can be blocked for
certain users, but not knowing the users, and since they're on port 80
(I assume), that might make life difficult.  perhaps you can stop anyone
connecting to hotmail though - I think you can do that too.
