That organization could well be running Squid to proxy Web & FTP requests, while still allowing IMAP, POP, & SMTP Internet access.

no your answer is wrong, the organization use squid proxy for internet sharing and they also use outlook express for pop3 mail which is also through squid proxy. I think there is some extra configuration required at squid.conf file. do u know?

Nope. Well at least not with any of the distributed versions of Squid. Per http://www.squid-cache.org/:

" Squid is...  a full-featured Web proxy cache"

and:

" Squid supports...  proxying and caching of HTTP, FTP, and other URLs
                                    proxying for SSL"

No where in there or in the documentation is there even any mention of other protocols.

Proxies for mail traffic do exist, like Perdition. But the requirements for a mail proxy are quite different from that needed for HTTP/HTTPS/FTP, and obviously there's not need or desire for caching of data.
