Different proxy settings for outlook & IE

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

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
