I don't believe that you can do what you want.
To setup the HTTPS you need either a certificate issued by an trusted authority, or you can generate one on your webserver and just have to "accept" the security warning everytime, or install it on every machine you want to "trust" the site. As far as encrypting the unsecured data, it stays unsecured unless you use vpn software (very difficult if you have ports blocked on a company firewall) ]
Maybe you could setup some type of remote desktop running on port 80 on your home machine. Then use your machine's browser to access your email. To do this may require software that your company may not allow.
Being one of "those" IT guys: (not to offend, just offer my two cents)
1. I wouldn't have time to even try to capture packets or screen shots of every person that works at my job.
2. Unless they were suspective of doing something (wasting company time, resources) not appropriate, would they even ask that this task be done.
3. Most companies let you know up front that they "can" and "will" go through electronic transmissions, but rarely would do something so drastic.
4. If you don't want people to "see" it, then maybe you could wait to do it at home or an internet cafe (which is far worse than your work!)
What I don't understand, is why your ISP webmail is not https anyway? Most ISP's with webmail use this to prevent giving out login information to their networks.
