Default Getting MDS to authenticate through proxy

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All, We have BES 5.0.2 and all our handsets are set to use the MDS browser only. All http traffic goes through our firewall and is proxy chained to a default policy on a cloud based proxy (zscaler) which doesn't allow social networking or streaming media.
All PCs on our network will use this default policy unless their browsers are set up pointing to a cloud hosted pac file, they can then authenticate and get different policies.
What we want to do is keep the default policy as is but let the Blackberry users get social networking so we need the BES to authenticate. I've tried putting in a username, password and proxy string in the proxy mappings section of the MDS connection Service but this doesn't work. If I check the MDAT log for when a web request is made there is an error:

PAC returns: Cannot retrieve Auto Proxy Script for <URL>

Any ideas as to how I can make this work?
Many thanks!
