Can you install apps on the firewall?. Don't know the security
implementations of this but you could try pop3gwd - A pop3 gateway daemon.
Install on your proxy/firewall from inetd on port 110 then access your email
username#realpopserver at domain proxypoperser.domain
Fine if you don't have a pop server on your firewall. If this is not an
option you will have to install on a different port and change the pop3
port in /etc/service on each of the clients.
It will work, but messy .. I would never do it again. If you really need
transparent access masquadering is cleaner
