To use the SOCKS proxy for an email client, you need to organize Port mapping or perform Outlook “socks”. The principle of performing Port mapping is described above. Let’s take a closer look at “socksification”.
What is co socksification and why is it needed
Due to the fact that the SOCKS protocol can send any TCP through itself, including POP3, SMTP, you can easily use SOCKS proxies even in programs where work with proxies is not provided. To do this, you will only need to use a “socksifier” like SocksCap.
It will help make the program use a proxy server if it does not know how to do this by default or connects only with an HTTP proxy.
Step-by-step instructions for “socksification”
In order to perform “socksification” you need to follow this instruction:
Run the program and click “New”.
Click “Browse” and select the startup file for the program that you want to “socksify” (for example, Outlook Express) and press “OK”.
Go to the "File" menu and click on "Settings".
Enter the address and the port of socks proxy.
Choose the proxy server type: Socks5 or Socks4.
If it is necessary, set the username and password (tick Username / Password when choosing SOCKS5) and confirm the setting with the “Apply” and “OK” buttons.
From now on, to start Outlook Express using the SOCKS proxy, you will need to go into the SocksCap program and 2 times click on the name of this mail client.
Now you know how to configure the proxy in Outlook. Choose the appropriate type of proxy server and try.
