IP Firewall Policy, Smoothwall & Googlemail on iPads

I'm currently in the process of tightening up our Wi-Fi infrastructure. To keep it short, I've applied a IP firewall policy on my APs and now my iPads won't download emails (gmail).  They can browse the internet perfectly well.  We use a Smoothwall firewall/proxy server.

Here's the IP Firewall Policy

Can anyone shed some light on why our emails won't download?

I am not a GMail user but several documents from Google suggest that GMail uses HTTP/HTTPS, IMAP and POP3.  If you allow POP3 traffic can you now access E-mails?
