For the past while, a lot of people have asked me to set up their Office 365 email accounts on their iPhones. I decided I would write a small post on setting up Office 365 email accounts on your iOS device. The screenshots I have included in my tutorial were taken with an iPhone that was running iOS 7.0.2. However, these settings will work for those of you who are running older versions of iOS. If you have an Android device click here for instructions.
Step One: Touch Settings
Step Two: Scroll down until you find Mail, Contacts, Calendars and select it.
Step Three: Click Add Account.
Step Four: Select Exchange
Step Five: Put in your email address and password. Click next when finished. It will verify your settings.
Step Six: Your iOS device will ask you what you want to sync. Select what you want to sync and click save. You have successfully added your email account. Mail will start arriving soon. If it doesn’t come up asking you what you want to sync, continue to the next step.
Step Seven: If your iOS device couldn’t find your account. It will come up to the following screen:
enter the following information. In the Server field enter outlook.office365.com and in the username field put your email address (ex. firstname.lastname@example.org) in. Keep the domain empty. Click next to verify the information. It should now find your email account.
Additional troubleshooting if your iOS device will not find your account.
1. Make sure your email address and password are entered correctly.
2. If your phone is connected to Wifi, disconnect it and try again.
3. If it still doesn’t find your settings, restart the phone and make sure wireless is turned off and then re-add the account.
4. If it still can’t find the information save the account and wait an hour an see if it starts synchronizing.
