I'm assuming you run the webmail site. If you do not, then the admin
themselves have screwed up and need to be told about their problem.

Squid needs to accept requests to port 2095 for this to happen.

It may also need a cache_peer line to tell squid the IP and port to
redirect certain requests to. With some matching cache_peer_access to
restrict which requests get sent to the peer.

Never heard of any 'white.list' option. The squid ACLs do though.

Then configure the http_access for this site before any access that
required authentication.
