How would I connect my school's Outlook Web Access to my iPhone. Would I use Microsoft Exchange or the SMTP server. And if I use SMTP / Exchange, how do I find the details for these. I have my school email's username & password, and I know the domain that the web access is hosted on, I just need to know how to connect it.

Your school should be able to provide you this information. You need to know the pop3 and smtp domain information. –  Ramhound Mar 13 '12 at 13:52

Nah, you don't have to contact the IT Help Desk. I've worked in a collegiate environment managing the IT servers and depending on the Help Desk manager, they can either be very competent or quite the opposite.

Aside from that, I think you have enough to get you started. Follow this article from Apple as a starting point. The server name would be the front-end server, or the website you use to log on your school's email using the web browser.

The domain would be the domain you would use when you log on to the in-campus school computers. Chances are that it would be something as generic as STUDENT or ACADEMIC. If you don't know, a quick call to the IT Help Desk would suffice, I mean, they would HAVE to know that.

Hopefully this gets you on a good path.

If you are using the modern Outlook Web Application, in the top right corner you should see a settings button. Select the button and click Options from the drop down menu.

Options Menu, Outlook Web Application

On the resulting screen in the left column toward the bottom you should see an option to see POP/IMAP settings.

Options Page

Clicking on the link should bring up a pop up will all the information you need. Note that your information may differ.

Connection Settings

Also, your username may involve your complete email ID (user@school.edu) rather than just the username.
