Ok, just an update, I've found out that the PC's on the network can access hotmail. What is the difference between the setup of windows and mac? When I try to login on mac it doesn't even log the request. When I was using apache as the server, it worked fine, but now that squid is here, it says can not connect to server, or something like that. I need help. Thanks.
