    Hi, I've just moved into my dorm and I've been having some internet problems. Firefox, iTunes and MSN Messenger work fine. Apple Mail and Adium on the other hand cannot connect. Help would be really appreciated, thanks in advance!

    It shouldn't matter where you are connected as long as your have a internet connection those problems should work... NOW, if your school is blocking ports or connection requests from your mac address or something then that might be a problem... You will need to talk to your IT department... and my guess if that they will be useless. Sorry.

    You can get programs that will change the ports that problems use or get a program that change your mac address to make it look like a PC on the network. Try the second idea first.
