Could any body guide/help me out in this regard.
This has been asked (and answered) here, and on numerous other sites, many, MANY times. Since you found this site via Google, did you try to look this up, or search here???
Squid is an HTTP proxy
. HTTP is NOT pop3, smtp, or imap. This means that Squid has NO IDEA what to do with them, nor will it ever. Since it only deals with web traffic, how you configure your DMZ/router/firewall is up to you. If you want to open those ports directly, that's your call...you can also use iptables to redirect things, setting up a transparent proxy. Did you try to look at the Squid documentation???
...are just some of the things you could easily find.
