Configuring iOS Devices (iPad, iPhone, etc.) for Use with 365 in Exchange Mode
Here below are listed the steps to take in order to configure your iOS device (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch) for use with 365 in Exchange Mode.
The below guide has been tested on iOS 5. Screenshots are taken from iPad thus may slightly differ from other devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, etc.).
- You must have a valid data connection active (either via WiFi or 3G).
- Tap on the Mail icon on the bottom of the main screen OR go to Settings > Mail, Contacts & Calendar and click on Add Account....
- Tap on Microsoft Exchange:

- Fill in the fields as follows:
Email = [email protected] (e.g.: [email protected])
Domain = [leave blank]
Server = m.outlook.com
Username = [email protected] (e.g.: [email protected])
Password = your_EUI_password

- Tap Save to finish setting up your email.
- If you now go to Settings > Mail, Contacts & Calendar and select the previously created mail account, you can choose how many days to sync and which other folders (apart from the default Inbox) to sync (we suggest no more than 2 weeks and Sent Items only, in order not to clog your device):

If you want to configure additional mailboxes, simply repeat all above steps from the beginning.
