In my school the tech admins are as ignorant as your usual lUser.
The main tech guy is totally lost if it's not Windows or Mac OS9. 
All the same, when using my school e-mail, I connect with my iBook and 
use Netscape mail, even though the guy told me that it was only possible 
to interface with the school's mail server using Exchange.
I also receive the same mail at home with netscape.
