    I'm trying to connect my phone to my colleges e-mail so i can receive them via my phone. They use outlook, and i just cant get it work.

    I called the colleges tech support with no luck.

    This is what i have.

    Incoming Server:
    POP
    m.outlook.com is this right?
    port#: idk what im supposed to use.

    Outlook Server: I took this from outlook on my computer via options.
    SMTP
    pod#####.outlook.com
    port#: I got this one.

    Anyone care to give me a hand with this? Starting get on my nerves.

    check with them again and see if they are using an exchange mail server (likely). If so, it's not a POP server, probably IMAP instead and in that case, would be port 143, I think. If you are not getting anywhere over the phone, I believe most campuses have an IT group you can go to and they will help you set it up.

    I am a IT student there, im there for networking....lol
    I did get it figured out. I went to my email and hit the question mark then went down to about. In there it showed me all the information i needed.

    The confusion came in when they told me it would just be the default values. Hard to believe people get paid to be support and don't have a clue about it.
