You can't run fetchmail with a http/s proxy ... that are 2-3/3-4
different protocols. If you want to run fetchmail you need to ask your
network administrator to give you a route on port 110 (or whatever you
need) in the firewall. He can do this only for your IP.

unresolvedissue:~# export http_proxy="";
unresolvedissue:~# export ftp_proxy="";
unresolvedissue:~# apt-get update ; apt-get dist-upgrade
this is my setup for working with a http & ftp squid proxy and apt-get
(also wget and other apps are using those vars...) maybe you want to
put those export commands into you /root/.bashrc or /home/user/.bashrc
