Your reply to Amos gives the impression that this is not an acceleration
set up, so it must be a forward proxy... Is this an explicitly set
proxy (set in the browser, or using a proxy.pac file) or is it an
interception setup? If it's an interception set up (which I wonder
about, given the http_port line), you are going to have to intercept the
traffic destined to port 2095 on the webmail server for Squid to have
any effect. If it's an explicitly set proxy, then I see no reason for
it not to work (given you have allowed the url in a url_regex statement
and are not denying based on ports). Then again, what regular
expression did you use to allow the url?

A url_regex acl can be subverted to match the port, but you wouldn't
need to.
