I currently have my iPhone 3GS running version 4.2.1 of the software setup to sync to 3 gmail accounts that I actively use.  I also have a microsoft exchange email account that I would like to setup on this phone.  Is this possible?  I only need the email -- not the calendar (I'm already synching my gmail calendar with the phone, and I'd like to keep it that way).

Yes - that is entirely possible.  You can have up to 3 Exchange accounts on v4 of the Apple iOS for the iPhone (as well as other email accounts).

Agreed.  I've got two Exchange accounts, MobileMe (find my iPhone) and an IMAP acount all syncing fine on my wife's 3GS

Okay, I'm trying to setup this now, to see if I can get it to work.  I think the problem I'm having then is that the exchange server I'm trying to access is available on my work's internal network.  Do you know what I need in order to successfully connect?

The name on the SSL certificate should be the name you need to access your server from the outside (if configured correctly).

Can you get to Web Mail internally?  If you can - look at the SSL certificate name and use that to hook up the phone e.g.,
