The iPhone is a line of smartphones designed and marketed by Apple Inc. The first iPhone was unveiled by Steve Jobs, then CEO of Apple, on January 9, 2007, and released on June 29, 2007. The 5th generation iPhone, the iPhone 4S, was announced on October 4, 2011, and released 10 days later.
Configuring Email (Exchange ActiveSync) on the iPhone (version: iOS 7)
These are the steps for iOS 7. (THE STEPS FOR EARLIER VERSIONS OF THE IPHONE OS WILL BE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT)
- Tap the “Settings” icon from the home screen, then “Mail, Contacts, Calendars”
- In “Mail, Contacts, Calendars”, tap “Add Account…”
- Tap the “Microsoft Exchange” or "Exchange" icon
- Note: This is where you come in if you tap the Mail app from the home screen with no accounts configured
- Now you will enter your Exchange account information:
- Email: Your full email address
- Password: Your email password
- Description: e.g. My Easter Seals Email
- Tap “Next” and the iPhone will attempt to auto-discover and configure the Exchange account - it should complete here, and you're just about done!
- Note: This can take up to 5 minutes on slow networks or if autodiscovery is not supported - our email server (if you need it) is: m.outlook.com
- Now we’re going to select what we want to pull down to the iPhone (calendar and contacts)
- Make sure Mail, Contacts, and Calendars are set to “On”.
- Tap “Save” and the iPhone will finalize the configuration and return you to the “Mail, Contacts, Calendars” menu while your iPhone communicates with the server.
- Note: It can take a few minutes for calendar entries and contacts to show up.
