    Fastest easiest way.... is going to be to contact your IT department.

    a way to "rig" any email address on any software/server/etc.

    1. set up a gmail account with the same address.
    i.e
    if the account you want to use is oasis9389@precentral.net make a gmail: oasis9389@gmail.com

    2. set up on the account you want to use (oasis9389@precentral.net) to FWD all incoming emails to the new gmail account

    3. set up on the gmail account a reply to rule.. in this case all emails reply to: oasis9389precentral.net

    4. set up on the gmail reply from rule, in this case all emails show reply from: oasis9389@precentral.net

    5. obviously put the new gmail account on the pre.

    so now, all emails you reply to show your account you wanted as the email being sent from, and when the user hits reply to: again the address you wanted will be replied to.

    I guess that you have your email set up by now, but on another matter it, pays to not publish your email address in plain language as you have done. It's an open inviation to spammers and you can probably expect a mountain of it shortly.

    I know that most college students can forward their school email accounts to their Gmail account. It shouldn't be too difficult to get set up and once you add your gmail account to your Pre, you should be all set.

    Almost positive you can hook it up, you connect via https to exchange? My school said they didn't support EAS but i plugged in the domain and everything else and it works great no work arounds. I'd ask them what the domain is and all the other settings you can get from hitting that https url, un, pw and you should be set as the ports are standard i think,

    Maybe the Pre is too advanced for him then?

    I saw this earlier today and was able to pull up the instructions...on my Pre.

    Lets not make excuses for laziness.

    1. Go to E-Mail
    2. Preferences and Accounts
    3. Enter Email and Password
    4. Select IMAP
    5. Under enter server name type in username.email.umn.edu
    6. Type in your username. No @umn.edu here
    7. Type in your password
    8. Select Port # 993
    9. Select SSL Encryption

    10. In enter server name box type in smtp.umn.edu
    11. Select Use Authentication. Type username/password in again
    12. Select Port # 587
    13. Select TLS Encryption
    14. Sign In

    No need for forwarding to gmail either

    If it's Outlook web then you might be able to use the URL to the webmail as an Exchange account when adding it to your Pre. Try it out!

    Um, Johnboy, he removed the email address from his post. Don't you think you ought to rip it out of your quote from him?

    Try logging into your account from your computer via outlook.com

    If that works for your campus e-mail then PM me and I'll reply back with the instructions to get it to work on your pre
