here most of the people regarding squid comes for the outlook express problem with squid..

The solution is to do port forwarding for pop and smtp ports or use Transparent proxy.. See Squid transparent proxy (

I think you have not understood , I am saying if you use transparent proxy then you can download mails using outlook also.
