Messenger), all text and voice messages in Skype etc.

Besides that SecureTower system controls the mail client traffic, where the protocols POP3, SMTP, IMAP are used (for example, MS Outlook, Thunderbird, The Bat!), messages MS Exchange Server, IBM Lotus and Domino, Kerio Connect, Sendmail, hMailServer etc.
