..... 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

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

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

to be able to check your email from outlook.
