What if the traffic is being generated by the firewall?  If it is going out
the WAN interface, what rule do I put the interface on?

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 do anything.

Hope this helps!
