Squid also allows you to permit and reject ports: see /etc/squid/squid.conf


acl Safe_ports                   port           80 8080    # http
acl Safe_ports                   port           21         # ftp
acl Safe_ports                   port           443 563    # https, snews
acl Safe_ports                   port           1025-65535 # unregistered ports
Is your config permitting POP and SMTP?
