I guess I'm still a little confused about the poster's original
request. It sounds like he is interested in stopping his own users
from spamming via web-based email services such as Gmail and Hotmail,
or via insecure forms. That can be accomplished hypothetically by
filtering HTTP requests and looking for spam in POSTs; although with
the proliferation os AJAX-style interfaces in these services, figuring
out which POSTs refer to a message submission is far more difficult
than it was in the good old Web 1.0 days.
