So it is a Not-So-SmartFilter?  Those URLs have to be in a database
somewhere, where the categories look to see if it a member.  Might have
to add it manually... Doesn't that do automatic updates?

yeah we have SmartFilter, and while I can block "webmail" as a catagory,
i seem to still be able to hit the yahoo email pages.

That's true, when you have professional malicious users like the little
savages in our public schools, you have to go with Websense or
SurfControl or some similar content filtering solution that updates it's
database everyday.

        You can go the black-list route, but knowing the kids we have
here they will find ways around your black-list in a matter of minutes.
Your best bet is a program similar to SurfControl, that updates their
listing of websites every day.
