Well, DNS is really a Linux problem - configure your /etc/resolv.conf
to use the ISA server for DNS (I suspect).
As for using the proxy, the man page provides details (just) on using
SSH tunnels etc. You're probably trying to do something similar.
However it depends on what ISA server supports - if it's socks you're
sorted (Google for "runsocks").
Alternatively, try opening up outbound port 110/TCP (POP) or 143/TCP
(IMAP) on the ISA server.
Please keep list traffic on the list.
