I have a BES 4.0 and people are using google maps and would like to block those who abuse it.

Which policy or method would be used to accomplish this?

Though that is a killer app!!

Use the "Browser Filter Domains" under "Application control policy rules" to specify the browser filter domain list using the IT Policy.

I have my BES's running through the existing Coperate Proxy Server running SurfControl and it works a treat

Was just wondering... Why would you block googlemaps ..? Do you really see a performance drain on the server when a user use it?

No, each BB has the 3meg plan and they are blowing it away. And no, I am not going to bump them to the unlimited.
