Question masquerading: additional proxies?


Alright, i want to finally quit using Windows ICS and set up a Linux router. I already had a masquerading box running ipchains using SuSE 6.0 with a 2.2.x kernel. It worked quite fine for common aps like http, ftp, telnet, even quake. Though there are certain other aps that simply refused to work despite everything i tried. Among those are ICQ, Kazaa, edonkey, www java chats, some problems with pop3 and smtp and other troublesome ones.

Now to my questions: I don't expect the situation to have improved much with 2.4.x and iptables. So I guess I'd have to use additional proxies to get those tricky aps to work. Socks is the first one that comes to mind.

1a) Would it be reasonable to use such proxies in addition to masquerading?
1b) Is it even possible?
2) Are there other proxies/daemons that could assist masquerading? Like maybe sendmail for pop3/smtp? Suggestions? =)

Any input would be greatly appreciated!
Good bye!
