You need to deny access to the following URL "*.messenger.hotmail.com". Blocking the ports does not really work, as if you block the default port 1863, it can use port 80, which will of course block normal web access.

Thanks for your reply Dalight But unfortunately i have done that, and still MSN messenger works I edited the squid.conf and added a script which point to a text file Badsites.txt in which all disallowed URL are listed. and I also did included it in the blacklisted sites through URL filter Add-on still it didn't effect. Also i hope to do the same with yahoo messenger. Hoping for your reply. thanks in advance...

Have you actually blocked outgoing IP traffic thereby forcing your users to go out through SQUID only. Let us have a look at your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file.

Sorry I forgot to tell you that I'm blocking my users through their IP addresses from the advanced web proxy add on where I only add each restricted users IP in the banned IP option in the network based access control...
