[squid-users] Cannot login webmail

I had built a Squid 2.4.STABLE1 traditional proxy under RH Linux 7.0.
The kernel is 2.2.17-14. Besides the Squid proxy, other services such as
firewall, Apache web and Dhcpd are also built on the same computer(M).
M is behind an organisation firewall and has parent Proxy Servers.

M contains 3 NICs two of which are connected to 2 isolated internal LANs
and one to the organisation Intranet. The users inside the 2 LANs can access
both the Intranet and Internet well through the Squid Proxy.

The problem is that the users cannot login some webmail services (e.g. hotmail,
sina) in the Internet. But I notice that login is possible through the firewall
M when the client machine point to Parent Proxy instead of Squid Proxy in M.

The conf in Squid.conf is
cache_peer abc.com.hk parent 8080 3130 default no-query

acl all src
acl in-servers dst
cache_peer_access abc.com.hk deny in-servers
always_direct allow in-servers
never_direct deny all

acl nets src
http_access allow nets
http_access deny all
prefer_direct off

The firewall rules in M is
ipchains -A forward -p all -s -d 0/0 -j MASQ
ipchains -A forward -p all -s -d 0/0 -j MASQ

Can you help me to solve the problem ? Thanks !
