Is it possible to set IE to use a proxy server just for specific sites, for example all sites ending with *

    You can use a proxy.pac-file to configure the sites to use a proxy. This can be made arbitrarily complex as you can use standard javascript.
    For a first start you may want to check

    For example to configure your browser to only use a proxy for specific sites you may want to change the first example to something like:

    function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
        if (dnsDomainIs(host, ""))
                  return "PROXY your_web_proxy:XXXX";
        return “DIRECT”;

    Could work, but is more complex that we really need.
