That is good to hear. Being that we are a K-12 school district, it is important for us to allow our students and teachers to do image searches. With the current Ironport setup, the user must do a standard web search, and then click on the various links until they get a site that has a useable picture. Given that the students only have an hour class time, time is of the essence and the extra effort this method takes is not efficient use of resources. If we were a business this would really be a non issue. With only two months of school left before the summer break, we can get along OK with what we have now. Come August though, we will need to see about working something out.

We are looking at this product for our school district and this is a major point for us. Our current filter has this capability. This is what I was sent when I asked about this: Thank you for calling in. Unfortunately Google does not tag the URL of image searches performed with SafeSearch turned off, so these searches can not be blocked directly. However, it is possible to block access to the Preferences URL's (where SafeSearch is turned off) using regular expressions. You can create a custom category with the following regular expressions and set it to 'Block' to prevent people from accessing this page: images\.google\.com/preferences images\.google\.com/setprefs You can also modify the following regular expression to block certain keywords in image searches. The following example regex blocks the image searches with the word "planes", "trains", or "automobiles": images\.google\.com/images\?.*\+(planes|trains|automobiles) Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have further questions. So the question is does anyone know of a quick way to set the Safe Search settings for Yahoo, Google and Ask? I am looking at having to do this on 1500 computers and I’m pretty sure there is not a GPO to do this with Microsoft. The simple question, is it possible to have Ironport append the Safe Search toggle to a search performed be the main search engines? For example, put “&safe=on” at the end of any Google search or “&vm=1” to a Yahoo search?
