if you check your school email with outlook, then open outlook, click on tools, click on view or change existing email accounts; you should then see your accounts, click on your school email, and click change, you should see your server information for that account. You will need to input that info when setting up your email account on your phone. It will test it as it is doing it, and you can set the frequency of checking that email and you should be good to go...

I guess it depends on the school? University of Arizona doesn't have any problem with this.
I have mine setup fine under k9. Annoys me a bit that I cannot set it up under the Gmail client, even though its a being outsourced to Google, but anyway...

I dont have my droid yet (getting it the 24th) but I just forward my school email to my gmail account it its worked great on my macbook pros email app and my blackberry. Most school emails seem to use a similar server so they should forward to gmail just fine. There is a slight delay before its forwarded to gmail (usually like 5 minutes) but otherwise no problems.

The email app on the Droid supports both IMAP and POP accounts. I would think that somehow you would be able to get it to work.
My school uses an IMAP system with Google Apps. It worked for me right away, but when my friend got his Droid, it didn't work right away. He had to change his password, and then change it back for his phone to work with it for some reason. So I'd recommend that you keep trying.

Re: school email setup
Honestly I suggest you just mess around with it for a little. I have a web-based email and it seemed impossible to synch it on my android. I did, however, go onto my email settings and learned the actual server name of my school email, which wasn't simply "ucsd.edu" then typed it after "imap." the application request then changed but somehow it worked.
just mess around and hopefully it will work!
if not you can try and forward your school emails to another account (gmail, yahoo, etc) and have that on your phone.
