If you are using MSIE as your browser, the problem can be relevant to it.
Since the browser seems not to cope with "WWW-Authenticate" required from
FTP/HTTP gateway, I made a dirty patch to use "Proxy-Authenticate" for it
in DeleGate/5.9.3.  <URL:http://wall/mail-lists/archive/delegate/8265>
But this seems to introduce new problem for POP/HTTP as you pointed out.
So I made another patch to avoid this problem:

*** ../../delegate5.9.5/src/http.c	Fri Sep  3 16:55:02 1999
--- ./http.c	Tue Nov  2 01:55:18 1999
*** 573,578 ****
--- 573,579 ----
  		SimpleContType = 1;
  	if( dp = strstr(UA,"MSIE ") )
+ 	if( REQ_URL[0] != '/' ) /* acting as an origin HTTP server */
  		ProxyAuth = 1;
  	if( dp = strstr(UA,"Mosaic") )

 |So there is a change in the code (I didn't run a diff... sorry..) which

 |/POP functionality be added?

I think using HTTPS on source (client) side will not affect functionality
of target (server side) application protocols.
