Access POP and SMTP through an HTTP proxy
Authored by: crephoto on Jan 13, '04 05:23:40PM

I had this working under Jaguar (OS X V10.2), but I can't seem to make it work under Panther. The proxy services seem to be working (they show up in a port scan), but the Panther version of the Mail App doesn't appear to be calling the connect function when I tell it to use the associated port. I am using Mail Version 1.3 (v606) under OSX version 10.3.

Also, Panther comes with a built-in "Mail Server Proxy" under the Network Preferences. The Web proxy works fine (I'm connected through it right now), but I can't for the life of me make any pop or smtp proxies work using the OSX Mail application.

Contact me with any info at charles at estabrooks dot org.
