Outbound and inbound traffic for POP3

I am trying to receive/send mail to my Yahoo account using Notes. I have created a POP3 and SMTP Yahoo account for my username and password. I have created a local mail database, and a location document. The location document settings are,
Internet mail address- <my yahoo address>
proxy - <my organisation's internet proxy>
send outgoing mail - directly to Internet
mail file location-local
mail file - the new local database.

But when I try to send/receive mails, I always receive the error "Replicator error, server not responding". Am I missing something?
Most likely your company's proxy doesn't allow outbound or inbound traffic for POP3, and your machine probably isn't allowed to go out on SMTP. This is a standard (and proper) firewall policy. Ask your network team if this is true.
