    Yea I found it very hard to believe. It wouldn't be too hard to figure out the POP or IMAP address for the connection and even if it is an Exchange server you would be able to get the address of the exchange server from the URL they give you to access your email

    Yeah its an IMAP, could not figure out the outgoing but atleast I can get my mail now with out logging in because most of the mail does not require a reply.

    On my school I need to have an IP address on the school's network to get outgoing to work. Maybe that's the case for you too?

    Back to laurit's original question: I use Mail Forward for OSX for my Yahoo and Hotmail accounts.

    Technically, it forwards your email to another account that you can already POP to, but since I have an account at my ISP, it works perfectly for what I need.

    ive been trying this for a couple of days now and i cant seem to figure it out. i contacted my school's IT department and he told me that it is possible for me to use a client in order to receive and send email. he informed me that it is a 'POP3' account and provided me with incoming and outgoing servers. ive tried these servers with the MacMail client and i get the following error message:
    "The POP server ?spam-srv1.lasalle.edu? is not responding. Check your network connection and that you entered the correct information in the ?Incoming Mail Server? field. If it still doesn?t respond, the server might be temporarily unavailable.

    If you continue, you may not be able to receive any email."

    if anyone has any info why i am getting this messge or what i can do differently please let me know.
