    I'm trying to set up my work e-mail and the e-mail language (exchange server, POP, IMAP, ports, SSL) has always confused me. The two ways I can access my e-mail is through Outlook in the office and webmail anywhere else.

    I just downloaded K-9 and I'm trying to figure out how to set it up. Am I supposed to do it by syncing with Outlook, through Webmail, or something different. Depending on which one, do I select POP3, IMAP, or WebDav(Exchange)? I tried exchange and used my webmail logins for username and password and then the Microsoft Exchange Server name that shows up in my Outlook as the WebDAV (Exchange) server. The port defaulted at 80 and I tried to do that but it didn't work.

    Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks.

    Your best bet might be to contact the IT people where you work. They should be able to wall you through all the steps. My company had instructions right on the intranet page. I've never been good at this sort of thing and I had mine set up on exchange in less than 5 minutes.

    Agreed. Depending on your setup, your server may be set up with ActiveSync which is your best option. They can walk you through how to set it up.
