I've been trying to setup to POP my college email account and can't seem to get it right.

I've tried multiple times but get the following error message every time:
"Cannot Connect Using SSL Do you want to try setting up the account without SSL?"

Even when I hit OK, still doesn't work.

I know that the mail server is up and functioning because I can still access it using my Treo 700w.

I've even tried using the AT&T server as my outgoing--still no luck.

Someone please HELP! Thanks.

Go see the IT guy and ask him for the smtp port. I know I had problem with my work email because of this. If the smtp port is 110 set up your outgoing email as follow:
smtp.yourcollege.com:110
it should do the trick
