Hi Jeff mathie,

I have checked your query and I want to assist you in blocking MSN, Skype and Gmail. Here are the steps to do that:

1. Open your Forefront TMG

2. Expand Forefront TMG (HOME-TMG) and select the Web Access Policy

3. Choose the “To” tab and Click Add button

4. Expand “URL Categories”. Click on Chat and Add it to URL Categories

5. When you are finished adding the chat to category, click OK and Apply to keep and apply the changes. Wait until it is configured. 

Note : You have to allow only HTTP/ HTTPS traffic and HTTPS inspection is enabled.

I hope this will help.
