You need to find your email settings screen. Add a new account. If you are given the option you want to add a new ‘Microsoft Exchange (Active Sync)’ account. Enter the following settings:
Email address: [firstname.lastname]@student.anglia.ac.uk
Domain: Do not enter a domain
Password: [your password]
Your mobile device should be clever enough to find your mailbox on the Microsoft server farm. It will look something like this: pod51008.outlook.com. No need to change this. Just accept it and continue.
You are now able to sync mail, calendar and contacts to your device. You can choose the frequency with which your mobile polls the server, which has an impact on your data usage and how quickly you receive new messages. Some devices accept push notifications, which will mean very fast notifications but potentially higher data usage. You’ll also be able to select how many message to sync back.
Any mail, contacts or calendar entries you make on your phone will be instantly available online and vice versa. Pretty cool, eh?
Hopefully someone finds this useful! (Except I have no readers at the moment, so maybe not…)
