I was able to get an Outlook Express to send and receive mail using every one of these instructions. But none of them actually worked for the iPhone.
When I first got my Windows Mobile, it just worked, with minimal configuration, out the box. I guess despite all its media glory, the iPhone is not a smart phone yet.
