    My school uses an outlook we app. I haven't had success yet. I haven't been able to use it through outlook 2010, but I haven't connected anything through outlook 10...

    If they are using exchange server then you'll need to set up a corp sync account. Corp sync is meant for use with exchange.

    VCCS.edu uses Gmail's ports and information... I setup my VCCS account yesterday.

    Another option is adding this account to existing gmail (from pc browser).. configure to send and receive with it.
