My work has blocked access to some websites. For example, I only have 60 minutes a day to view my web based email. Meaning that once I go to my web based email it will only stay open for 60 minutes. Once it is opened the clock starts and does not stop even if I log out.

I NEED to access my web based email all day long!

Anyway around this?

Stop looking at scat porn you perv.

Web based e-mail? Like AOL.com or something?

Usually restriction comes through firewalls but this doesn't sound like it.

I get this:

Reason:
The Websense category "Web-based Email" is filtered.


To view sites in this category you must use quota time. You have 0 minute(s) of quota time remaining. Click the Use Quota Time button to start a 0 minute session for viewing this site and other sites in quota-limited categories.

Try a site like proxify.com or vtunnel.com. It's a place where you can put in the address of the site you want to visit and it masks it from the filtering software. I have heard of some places where the IT dept has gotten wise and blocked "proxy sites" too, but give it a shot at least.

I would be careful working your way around the company firewall. Employers tend to look down at that. Sorry, just had to throw that out there. :) Good luck, Jeremy.
