    Ok, I'm not sure how to set up my college email account properly on my mac. I've been using it for a while, and it kind of has some issues. It will usually tell me when I open it that it can't verify the certificate validity or something like that.

    Also, I haven't been able to SEND emails from the account. I have to set it up to send using my gmail account.

    When I try to screw around with it, it gives me lots of errors and just kind of acts a bit screwy. I'm not quite sure how to do it.

    I go to baylor and it uses microsoft exchange. mail.baylor.edu to access the account, and then the address changes to fs-exchange.baylor.edu/exchange

    So what all to I need to use and exactly how do I set it up?

    (side note, I just got an iphone and was able to set it up on that no problem)

    Unless I'm wrong, Apple Mail does not work with Exchange Server.

    If you have MS office 2004 or 2008 use entourage, entourage supports exchange.

    Entourage is just another email client, its like the microsoft outlook for mac os x. I don't specifically know how to use it, since I don't, but im assuming you can add an account, and add a "Microsoft Exchange" email address.
