I asked the UTSA support staff about IMAP access to the new GMail
powered UTSA email and they said they should have IMAP support starting
in the summer. If you're still using the lonestar email, you need to go
to ASAP and enable your new UTSA email account. At least the GMail
interface is much better than the lonestar one. Now if you're referring
to accessing another email account from the UTSA Rowdy network, then,
yes, it is pretty annoying that they're blocking POP access.
Get the power of Windows + Web with the new Windows Live.
