Thunderbird can not connect to pop server.


Hello,

We have got domain and pop server with go daddy. We use pop.secureserver.net and smtpout.secureserver.net for mailing.
Also there is a squid server through which internet is shared.
When I configure thunderbird to connect to pop.secureserver.net and smtpout.secureserver.net I get the error at client "Connection to pop.secureserver.net timed out"
Though I can connect and download mails at squid machine.
At other office though we can download messages on outlook and thunderbird through squid.
May I know what are the changes that I need to do at squid so that clients can download mails from pop server?

It's very plain...he tried the Evolution mail client, instead of using Thunderbird.

Also, please start your own threads, rather than hijacking someone elses from over a month ago.
