Problem with Outlook Express


Dear all,


I have configured squid proxy server on rhel 4. I have also configured outlook express. I have a hotmail account but when I come through proxy then I cannot login to my email. When I remove proxy settings then it works fine. Please guide me if there be any configuraton required in squid.


Thanks a lot.

From where do you remove the proxy settings? From Outlook express? Or you mean you remove the proxy server from the network?
If your proxy is not configured in transparent mode, then you will need to configure your IE settings. And make sure your proxy server is running.
Check for the status: service squid status

If its not running: service squid start.

I mean when I remove proxy server's setting from client running windows xp. then outlook express works fine. My proxy server is also working fine for normal web browsing but the problem comes with outlook express.

Ok do you configure web browser for proxy settings?
If it is not configured then may be your squid is running is transparent mode and in this case will not accept requests if you configure your browser for the proxy settings.

Yes I have configured web browser for proxy settings.

Further more it is not a transparent proxy.My internet is working fine.
The only problem as i mentioned earlier is not signing in with outlook express.

Thanks

So it is something to do with your squid configuration then.
I had this issue with thunderbird but evolution worked well. But if none of them are working then there is something to do with your squid config.
Is there any reason why you have not configured it for transparent proxying?

Well. I think I did not read your question correctly previously. Squid is a http proxy and will not proxy pop imap or smtp requests. For that will need socks proxy.
