    Your IT admin would need to enable POP or IMAP on the Exchange server, and have external internet accessible addresses for them...good luck with that!

    Outlook can communicate with Exchange, iPhone can only use POP or IMAP. Exchange is a totally different technology.

    Because you can connect if IMAP/POP is enabled as mentioned above. But by default, it isn't because its not needed for Outlook clients either via Outlook or Outlook Web Access. Unless your IT guys enable IMAP especially, you just won't get it working directly with your iPod.
