where is your mail server in your topology? If it is beyond th router
you mnetioned then you can do one of this:
- enable routing on your linux box, (it is not squid related)
- if you set up packetfiltering or any firewall function (two interface
is not necessary for squid), then check its rules
- or if no firewall/routing function is necessary on your linux box,
then connect the router to the hub not to the linux box.

squid is just a _http_proxy (with cache function, of course), it has
nothing with mail relaying or network firewalling.
