    Ive been trying to connect to my school's email server so I can get updates from them. At first it says cant connect using ssl do you want to try without and I click yes. Next it says the IMAP verification failed? I dont know what im doing wrong. I think it might be for what im putting in host name for both outgoing and incoming mail server. Heres the site for the email if it helps ocs.hbu.edu . Any help would be greatly appreciated. Oh and its username@hbu.edu Thanks

    Pretty ballsy posting your email/username.
    If you can connect with a computer outside the school network, then set up your email account EXACTLY the same way on the iPhone. If you have never set up a computer to retrieve your email, contact the school's system administrator for the precise settings.

    PS is your school a POP account - if so you will need to set it up that way, not via IMAP settings.

    yeah, I'd edit that out.

    What does Connection Doctor say? (from the show detail part)
