pound proxy maintaining https

Have a site at which I've configured pound as a reverse proxy for Lotus 
Domino Web Access (DWA). That seems to be working well.

To get to the site, users go to https://webmail.abc.com - works fine.

We are configuring Sametime (instant messaging) integration with DWA. 
When the user is in their webmail session, they can click on a chat 
button that loads a chat client.
Hovering over the chat button shows the URL as "st.abc.com" as the host 
name. However, when the user clicks on it, the browser attempts to 
connect to https://st.abc.com, not http://st.abc.com.

The connection fails because we're not using https on the st host.

The question is - it appears that the pound proxy is still redirecting 
to https? If the st host isn't part of the pound configuration - why is 
it redirecting to https????

Thanks for any insight.

I don't think pound is involved here but https is choosen by the browser
itself. Maybe you could change the link "st.abc.com" to include the
protocol, like "http://st.abc.com/".
