Set up mail server to spoof firewall into thinking pop3 mail is an http request

I am working at a client site that restricts almost all internet traffic through their firewall.  We have internet access through a proxy server.  My problem is that I cannot access my pop3 mail while at the client site.  I read somewhere from someone who had a similar problem.  They supposedly set up a mail server at home and configured it to use SSL.  Doing this caused the pop3 requests to look like http requests so that they wouldn't be filtered by network.  Does anyone have any ideas?

If you have control over your server for POP3, you can move traffic to a non-standard port and this might help you if the firewall at your client's site blocks traffic based on ports. If, however, it inspects content of transmissions and blocks based on that, you're not helped by using another port.
