POP3 & SMTP Proxy servers?

i am running squid and sendmail on my linux server. You need to install sendmail to handle your smtp and a pop server like cucipop by Cubic Circle.

For help on installing and compiling sendmail go to www.sendmail.org

Most people faced with this problem are putting POP/SMTP servers in their DMZ.

You really need to define what you need proxy services for. Are you indending to increase security of your site? Are you worried about security problems and feel a proxy server will fix those worries?

You could take a generic proxy system and hack it to work with POP or SMTP. If you know Perl programming, there's a couple of articles on simple web proxies at http://www.stonehenge.com/merlyn/WebTechniques/. These proxies could be modified to work with SMTP/POP3 protocols rather than http.

Procmail may also be useful, depending on what exactly you're wanting.
