Default Outlook Problem

I have recently started using a proxy server as I have moved to uni and it requires me to enter a username and password everytime I open a webpage (which is really annoying).

Unfortunately its stopping outlook being able to send and recieve email as well. Its not prompting me for the u&p when I send and recieve (for the proxy that is)

Any ideas how I can get around it?

I think the proxy there using is squid

have you tried setting up the proxy configuration in IE. seems this would resolve the problem for you. The default of OE is to use the settings from IE. If you setup IE to use a proxy then you should be able to get though. This is unless they have set up a block on OE.
Have you talked to the Uni yet about this?

Yeh proxy config is ok, but proxy requires a password everytime i go through it, problem is outlook doesnt prompt me for this. The mail server password is set up.

not talked to uni about it yet its like trying to get hold of water in a desert!!

If I do that it doesnt work either. I cant access the internet without the proxy server.

Extremly annoying
