..... no. iptables is not for that. or explain better please.

iptables is a firewall for linux, not a connector between linux and outlook. if you have outlook you only need to configure pop3 server or imap and check. nothing is neccesary for this connection. is pure pop3/imap

I realize that. My problem is that my users can't download their emails because the firewall is restricting permissions to do this

ahhh ok. you need to add this lines to your firewall


iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 110 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp  --dport 143 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 25 --syn -j ACCEPT


Firs line POP3

You need to also add your local ip range in /etc/mail/access

to be able to check your email from outlook.
