Reading your question again. For webmail services using your browser (or
outlook client configured for webmail) HTTP is used, not
IMAP/POP/SMTP/etc..

If you have problems accessing such services then make sure your browser
and/or email client is configured to use the proxy.

If there is still problems, please tell us a little more about your setup
and what errors you receive. Also check your cache.log for any strange
messages. Note: If you are inside a firewall requiring the use of a parent
proxy then see the Squid FAQ for proper Squid configuraion.
