    Thanks for the help

    I asked about the e-mail before i had configured squid, then after i had configured it I started getting problems with the outlook.

    I've looked around on other forums and most suggest working with iptables and setting squid up as tranparent. This might solve the problem but i still don't understand why it wont work without making any modifications to the box with the squid server.

    I was'nt working with iptables to begin with. I cant access the mail only when point to my proxy. I would like to know why it does'nt work instead of just modifying what needs to be changed

    Hello Lambert,

    If the problem is'nt with squid, am i supposed to configure the client in another way? that is besides specifying the squid server's address
