You are right abhishek, that's the keypoint in blocking and unblocking
in squid.
Actually even I was working on the same line and I did it.

The difference between the general users access and domain specific
access here is the difference
the link for gmail for general users is mail.google.com/mail/------
and for domain specific users it is mail.google.com/a/ourdomain/----

so what one has to do is, restrict the access on url base instead of
domain based.
i.e.  block the access to url mail.google.com/mail and this makes a magic.

Now if you try to access gmail as a normal user, it will not work, but
if you access gmail under your domain
it will work.

This info is for  them who wants to tryout this.

anyways, thanks abhishek.
