Outlook 2k & Proxy Server Configuration Problem

To maximize our ADSL, I installed WinProxy to access the Web in our small
Star Topo, peer to peer network of 4 computers.  MS Explorer 5 works fine,
but Outlook 98 and 2k and Express 5 cannot connect to the POP3 to retrieve
or to the SMTP to send on the client machines. Outlook is configured for
Corp/Wrkgrp and in the Services Tab, Internet Email connection is set to use
the LAN. In the Servers tab, the incoming and outgoing is also setup
properly. However, when "send/receive" is toggled on the client units,  it
responds that "the POP3 server cannot be found". It works ok in the
"server". Any clues? I am sure I overlooked something simple...

Can you PING the POP3 server from any of the clients? Is the proxy machine also proxying port 110?

Thanks Vince,
The WinProxy we have is "the other one" by M&M. After reviwing the info at the site you pointed to, I downloaded the Ositis version and within a short time had everything configured and running. What a difference over the cumbersome and difficult product by M&M. The simple config and DHCP options offered by the Ositis product were a real treat. Thanks for "solving the problem".

I was able to ping just fine and the port configuration was ok also. The problem was in the DNS and Gateway tabs of Outlook. The WinProxy we have is "the other one" by M&M.
