Office 365 Mobile: Set up Exchange on iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch

Set up email using Outlook for iOS


Note   Outlook for iOS requires iOS 8.0 or higher. App availability varies by country so find out what's available in your country. If the app is incompatible with your device, try adding your mail account using the built-in mail app that comes with your device.

  1. Download the Outlook for iOS app from the Apple Store if you haven't installed it yet.

    If you already have it installed, open it, then tap Settings > Add Account.

  2. Tap Office 365

  3. Type your full email address, for example, type your password, and then tap Sign in. Outlook for iOS begins syncing.

  4. The account will be added, and Outlook for iOS will begin to sync to the email account.

Set up an Office 365 for business or other Exchange-based email account

  1. Tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Accounts > Add account > Email.

  2. In the Add Account page, tap Exchange.


  3. Enter your full email address, for example, and your password, and then tap Next.

    If the device can't find your settings, you need to add them. In Server, enter, and then add your Username and Password.


  4. By default, Mail, Contacts, and Calendar information are synchronized. Tap Save.

  5. If you're prompted to create a passcode, tap Continue and type a numeric passcode. If you're prompted and don't set up a passcode, you can't view this account on your device. You can also set up a passcode later in your settings.

    Note   If you get a time-out message, your password or other information might be incorrect. Retype the information, and then try again.

Note    You might need to need to wait ten to fifteen minutes after you set up your account before you can send or receive email.
