Q: How to set up HTTPort for use with e-mail client (Outlook, Messenger, Pegasus, The BAT!, etc.) ?

You should have an account on an external mail server, which provides POP3/SMTP services. Ex: I use account on yahoo.com. I will explain the setup with Yahoo account.

Yahoo provides POP3/SMTP services by means of two servers: pop.mail.yahoo.com:110 and smtp.mail.yahoo.com:25 respectively.
Create two HTTPort mappings. These should mirror local ports 9110 and 9025 (or any other ports you like), to remote ports pop.mail.yahoo.com:110 and smtp.mail.yahoo.com:25. Set up your mail client to use server 127.0.0.1:9110 as a POP3 server, and 127.0.0.1:9025 as an SMTP server. This should work.
