DavMail works great, except when I'm connected to my company's ethernet. For some reason, the proxy server in System Preferences is just 'proxy' with port 8080.

The error DavMail gives me is:
* BAD unable to handle request: DavMail configuration exception: Connect exception: java.net.SocketException Can't connect to SOCKS proxy:proxy

I guess the main question would be, does DavMail check if the proxy server is a valid URL / IP address, or does it try and fail to connect to the proxy? And if the latter, why would that happen if my other apps have no problem with it?
