Hmmm.... Squid is for FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects.
POP is not in the list.
It sounds like you want 192.168.1.1 to be running SOCKS for you.
Gmail is on port 995 not 895 I think. Perhaps that is it.
Is the squid server on a firewall that should also be running a SOCKS
Proxy Server or NAT service for you? Use a search engine like Google
and look for SOCKS PROXY NAT and Linux ...
If you are using fetchmail this can work
well enough to get you started. Set the Gmail
config bits to keep mail on gmail so you do not
toss messages in the bucket.
Save as .fetchmailrc-google and run with:
fetchmail -v -f .fetchmailrc-google
after your put your account names and secret words in place.
Permissions should be "chmod 600 .fetchmailrc-google"
