    Ask your school's technical help desk for the Pop/IMAP or other settings.

    Mine said no because their system is not a traditional Pop or IMAP setup, but I think it's just because they think I'll come to them for support if I need assistance. :rolleyes:

    talk to your school IT people, they probably have a webpage somewhere with all the instructions

    In all likelyhood you can. What type of system does your school recommend for email access (IMAP, POP3, Exchange)?

    I set mine up to work with mail on my MBP, but it was a long time ago and I don't remember how I did it.

    Does this mean it would also work with my iPhone?

    If your school supports POP or IMAP then you should be good to go.

    A good way to tell is to search your schools site for the words POP or IMAP ... usually you'll come across instructions to setup with a email client. Just use those same settings for the iphones Mail.app ... just add a account in the settings menu and select "Other" then enter the settings you found.

    I have my school email on my phone as well.

    Luckily we have an exchange server running, so it wasn't too hard to figure out.

    It can be done; just get in touch with your IT folks at the campus. I've got both university email addresses on my iPhone and a gmail account as well. The three work flawlessly...:p

    imap gmail works just fine or at least it does under 1.1.4 did they brake it in 2.0?
    Why the double forward?
