Regardless of what you're using as a client you are not using exim as an IMAP server.

Thanks but this doesn't help since he does not have a phone and probably won't get one for a few years.

Well it seems there is no way to do this today. Perhaps a feature will be added to Text+ or a different SMS app will come out with parental controls. I'll award the bounty to the best responder for effort. Thanks all. Note that if it were up to me I would've split the bounty between the two best as they weren't far apart IMO - oh well.

Thanks Philippe but a block-list is not very useful, I want an allowed-list. Also he's not my son, per the question he's my nephew (not that it matters that much). For help with what can go wrong I would refer you to reality :)

I hear ya harrymc, and I donate to the likes of openssh (actually openbsd) to help people world wide get around fsck'd governments like China and, more and more, the USA. AFAIK my newphew does not have access to google or the web at large. His Kindle has been locked down to reading and a few games and now a texting app.

THanks for the information. Though does not address the main thrust of the question which is how-to establish a short-list of approved contacts for SMS.

He got an app called Text+ (and he also has the Disney parental control app and the WiFi parent app - if that helps)

comment How to use sudo with rcp command to copy files from linux host to HP-UX host?
Pretty much - a reference to scp is informative so I added it; note that I up-voted your answer rather than make my own...

You don't want to enable rcp to receive as root, if you do get it to work then take a few minutes to disable it. Better to use scp as a non-root user on both sides and then sudo mv and chown appropriately on the other side.

comment Our company claims that the DLP system can even monitor the contents of HTTPS traffic, how is this possible?
This is commonly done. An enterprise configures a proxy server and installs a certificate that matches * - all the browsers make https connections which terminate at the proxy server which thens reads/saves/modifies/scans the data and establishes an https session with the actualy destination server. A sophisticated user can look at the certificate presented to their browser and know, but no one but me checks the certificates manually ;)
