In response to the following “Ask IT” requests:
From Shiji Chacko:
I want to set up my Iphone with my FIT email for easier access to my mail. To do so it asks me for Incoming Mail Server host name, Outgoing Mail Server host name, and VPN? Can you help?
From Arthur Kopelman:
Ever since the recent updates (a few days ago) I have been unable to download e-mails to my PDA. What should the outgoing and smtp now be set to?
