    Do they provide POP, IMAP, or Exchange access?

    I don't know. Wouldn't that be a thing for Outlook Web Access in general? I wouldn't know how to search for it anyways.

    It all depends on how the server is set up. My work allows me to connect with IMAP or Exchange, or use OWA. My wife's work only allows her to use OWA. You'll have to ask you school what's available.

    And if hypothetically it would work with some of those, how would I go about adding it to my Mail? Also, what would it being able to work with Exchange do? That's also a Windows thing.

    Mail is compatible with Exchange, IMAP and I believe POP3. If your school support these you can set up Mail relatively easily.

    Either mail->preferences->accounts or File->Add Account.

    OK, So what you need is their external facing site.

    It wil be something like https://webmail.organisationsite.com/owa or something to that effect.

    If they do indeed use exchange for their mail, and not some other hosted substitute, you will be able to add it as an exchange account.

    Make sure you add the IP of the external facing site as an external server, use the URL as internal (this should allow you to use the services inside the school network).

    Any problems, PM me and I can see what I can do to help you.

    EDIT - I see you posted the link...

    So for the IP part, put in 68.164.103.173

    Your username should be entered as it would on the site, or sometimes, you might need the domain.

    This is found under your login screen when you login at school... might be something like;
    Username - Your UID
    PW - Your PW
    Log onto - Domain Name

    You may nee the fully qualified domain, which would be shoshanascardin.org
