if u are accessing POP3 and SMTP through the Linux server that hosts your squid process, and are using IPchains or IPTables, u will not have to worry about thinking that u are accessing your mail through Squid... what actually happens is that Ipchains and IPTables transparently passess POP3 and SMTP requests to your POP3/SMTP servers through the same Linux server that hosts your squid process...

all u have to do is specify your SMTP/POP3 server in your mail client, and then specify your default gateway as your gateway server.. if u are running squid on your gateway server, so be it.. squid will only respond to the HTTP protocol.. if u need to access your POP3 and SMTP server, IPchains will take care of this and just route your packets through...

just esnure that u have enabled Masquerading..

good luck..
