I have installed Squid Proxy server in our red hat linux 8.0, its working fine, but I am unable to get my pop3 email from outlook express, but when I directly connected to internet there is no problem with outlook express. Someone tell me that here trasparent proxy is the best solution, please tell me how i configure the transparent proxy.

Squid only proxies HTTP, HTTPS, & FTP traffic, which is why your POP3 connection doesn't work.

While there are proxies for email traffic, like Perdition, a proxy for Internet access might no be the correct solution. One would prefer a proxy over a NAT'ing firewall if:

One has a large amount of web traffic relative to the Internet bandwidth and wants to reduce Internet traffic by taking advantage of Squid's caching.

One needs to control what web sites are allowed.

One needs to control the bandwidth used for web access

One need to limit web access to authenticated users

If none of those apply a NAT'ing firewall would be a better solution since it will allow access to essentially all Internet services.
