probably impossible. cluelessness is eternal.
and getting an org to stop it would require them admitting that they
were being clueless to start with. that's extremely unlikely to happen.

so run your mail server or ssh daemon on port 80 or 443.
easy enough to do.
i've had to do that recently for my partner, so she can ssh to home to
read her mail (her sysadmin at work was being very slow about updating
the fw rules to allow her to ssh out. took me only a few seconds to
configure sshd to listen on port 443 as well as port 22).
