    Is it possible to block internet access to unauthorised users based on the
    MAC address of the workstation?

    I have checked Firewall Policy rules and could only find All Users and
    Authenticated Users

    ISA Server 2006 cannot filter traffic by MAC address. However, a plethora of
    hardware devices (switches, routers, etc) and software products are capable
    of doing this for you. Exclusive MAC address filtering isn't the best
    answer, in my opinion, as MAC addresses can be spoofed quite easily and only
    a very small office could receive any benefit from doing an inclusive MAC
    filtering strategy.

    What exactly is the problem? I specialize in security and would be happy to
    help you any way I can. If you could describe your network scenario to me
    along with who is gaining unauthorized access to Internet resources and how
    they're believed to be doing it, preferably through email, I'd be able to
    come up with more specific solutions.
