Hi, I work for IT support and our internet policy blocks all outside email. no if and or buts.... we've run across a couple of users who's browsers look like to be redirected to http://mail.live.com. but since were blocking all out side email they get our 403 forbidden page, kinda neato to see them freak out thinking there going to get into trouble lol. it happens randomly sometimes they'll go right to the MSN page but other times they'll be directed to the live page. How do i prevent them from being redirected?

edit i forgot to add this is XP Pro possibly effecting up to 800 different boxes lol

also can a mod move this i put it in the wrong section....

Moved.

if you have access to server the 403 page resides on, id check the logs to that page to see if they show a referrer. that might give you a clue why they are being redirected

could just add mail.live.com to the host file to point to somewhere harmless like google or you companies homepage

we use a proxy server here (Ubuntu+dansgaurdian) that governs all http traffic but thats not always ideal for large organizations

Its not the point of redirecting it... what initially makes it point there? I redid a laptop today from scratch and its pointing to that website. So far all I've added were the products offered by W.U. and Office. Nothing special. I know I'm being redirected from the MSN.com website as thats the browsers default homepage.
