At least in the 1.1 betas, you want to add a LAN rule to block packets
originating from the LAN, with whatever criteria you're interested. I
just created a rule to block outgoing IMAP but doing that and picking
IMAP as the destination port for the rule. Make sure this block rule
comes before the default "Default LAN -> any" rule, otherwise it won't
Hope this helps!
