Deter frequent Mail.app email checks
Authored by: Blittser on Oct 28, '05 03:31:42AM

In response to this post, I have managed to block port 995 on my router between 10am and 8pm. This is the port that gmail uses for POP access. It seems to work. Mail.app can't download my mail from gmail during this period.

I could also block any other distracting sites during this time I suppose. e.g. gmail.com, Macnn, Macsurfer, Macosxhints etc.

This is with a Netgear 834G. I'm sure other brands have similar features.

Damn, that's hard-core.

I like it.
