Proxy settings- where?
In school we set proxy settings in IE to get on the Internet, no usual problems but have a laptop, not on the domain, so I have the settings manually set in IE. When at school I tick the box to use a proxy, when at home I untick, simples..or so I thought. This laptop when connected in school and connected to the school wifi and the proxy is unticked will not connect to google etc (so far so good) BUT if I go to our council webmail service https://webmail etc (its outlook) it connects! There is a message saying serching for our proxy address then it shows the web page and all works (so not cached). How does that work? Where does it get the proxy info from?

Your council's webmail will not be the other side of the proxy on the WAN, so it's accessible directly. Same here - I can access everything including stuff in the council DMZ without proxy settings. You can use this to speed up services on the WAN by putting in exceptions so the browser doesn't use the proxy for those addresses.

Same here, we use a PAC file and I have it set to go direct with no proxy is the DNS name resolves to 10.*.*.*, covers all the internal county stuff
