    from what i gather, MS exchange is mail, scheduling, contacts on one server. POP3 is simply for mail.

    i added my university's email under "other" as a pop3 account and it works 100% fine. you just need to make sure that your college has a pop3/imap server and you should find the info for this.

    just goto settings > mail > add account > other

    I added my school account to mail.app. The only problem I had was it added a bunch of folders I didn't want - all the IT lists that I have no interest reading. Once the semester starts (Monday) I'm going to ask the IT people how I can get rid of them.

    My IT department told me our uncw.edu mail was an exchange and they didn't think it'd work. Please tell me theyre wrong

    they're probably not wrong. by default Ms Exchange server doesn't server POP email accounts, so the ipod touch won't connect to it using the mail.app.

    It can be turned on in Exchange but in most practices it isn't.

    The only way to find out is try....

    I added my school email to my Gmail account, then added my Gmail account to mail.app. I think its much more easier that way.
