Phone and tablet setup reference

Stay connected on-the-go by using your phone, tablet, or other mobile device to access email, calendar, contacts, and more.

If you want to sync email, calendar, and contacts, your device must be compatible with Exchange ActiveSync (also referred to as Exchange email). Most mobile devices support Exchange ActiveSync, but if yours doesn't, you can use IMAP or POP to sync just your email.

Note: Using IMAP or POP to set up your email account means only your email will sync to your device. You will not sync calendar or contacts.

Quick links to setup Office and email on your mobile device:

Use the Mobile Devices page

When you access the Mobile Devices page from the Outlook Web App, you can manage phones, tablets, and other mobile devices that you have previously synced to your mailbox. To view the devices that you have connected to your account, Sign in to Outlook Web App, select Settings Settings icon > Options > General > Mobile devices.

Manage your connected devices on the Mobile Devices page






Select a mobile device from the list > Details edit

This will display info about the device, including the device name, type, and the last time the device connected to your mailbox.



Select the device you want to remove > Remove Remove

Use these steps to remove the sync partnership and delete the device from your mailbox. This does not remote wipe your device.

If your admin asks for your device's log, or you're looking to technical details about your device's synchronization, use this action. You’ll receive an email message in your Inbox with the log file attached that you can forward to your admin.



Select the device you want to refresh > Refresh refresh

The list of mobile devices that are syncing with your mailbox is updated automatically. However, you can refresh the list manually using this option. If you’ve configured a new device and can't see it in the list, check the Exchange ActiveSync settings on the device.
