I would like to set up different proxy settings for outlook express & Internet Explorer. By default Outlook takes the proxy settings from the IE settings & I don’t see any options to override it. Is there any way to do this ?

You can force Outlook Express and Netscape Messenger to use the proxy by using a freeware program put out by NEC called sockscap. More information about sockscap, setup instructions and download link can be found on our web page at http://theproxyconnection.com/socks.html

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

Your proxy should allow you to enter a url similar to
http(s)://www.myproxy.com/url=http://www.hotmail.com

HI chicagoan
I am not hosting any proxy server , I use the ISP proxy . Over here we cant access the internet without the ISP proxy .But somehow outlook express does not download hotmail mails if i use their proxy , so I use an anonymous proxy . But basic browsing is slow when I use this proxy . That is y i wanted to know if there is any way to put 2 different proxy for both , Which as far as I know looks impossible .
  Links submitted by shivsa does say something about this but I cant see any such option on my outlook , there is a mac icon in his link so i think it is for mac not for windows , the 2nd link is for outlook 2003 , I want outlook express .

Thank all for the effort .

my point was to try using the url of your proxy in the mail setup dialogue
http://anon.free.anonymizer.com/http://www.hotmail.com

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
