squid proxy problem - website uploading?

I have a couple of questions really bugging me about squid proxy.
Basically we've got a bunch of squid proxys running behind a firewall here at school.
Everything is basically working fine. Web browsing ok, except for a few weird things.
Below I"ve posted my squid.conf
I can't for example, go to's email site and upload an attachment greater than around
500k or so. But when bypassing the proxy it works flawlessly??? Its got me really confused why it only
works up to a certain point.
I'm new to playing with linux and squid, but am loving it bigtime. It just never goes down. :-) Thankgod.
But this problem is annoying, so if anyone has any thoughts on this, it would be much appreciated.
