Also include the current proxy settings for the explorer clients. I take it that your firefox or other browsers are working ok.

oh... but then of course squid is an http proxy, not an imap / smtp / pop3 one.

as above, squid is *NOT* an email proxy. you can't run email through it.

difference, about 3 years and a few million dollars of investment.
