Off campus Imap mail server substitute?

My schools outgoing mail server only works on campus. So sending email using outlook when I'm off campus is a problem.

Can I mix and match incoming and outgoing mail servers? I already tried MSN mail servers but never got it to work.

I want to use the university incoming mail server which does work off campus, with some other outgoing server. Is this even possible?

It should work. I had to do the same back when I was in school.
You may have to change the password and user name of the outgoing mail server though. You will have to put the MSN password and login name.

Later, I found out my school also had proxy servers for people off campus who used dialup. You may look into that.

When I'm off campus, I use my ISP's server. I didn't even consider checking to see if there were proxy servers for off-campus students. I'll have to look into that. Thanks Kdogg!
