Add an Exchange ActiveSync Account

If you synchronize your phone with your Exchange ActiveSync account, you can read, manage, and send email in the same easy way as with a POP3/IMAP account. However, you can also access some powerful Exchange features.

Important: Before setting up a Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync Account, contact your company’s Exchange Server administrator for required account settings information.

  1. From home, tap Apps all apps icon > Settings settings app icon > Accounts > Add account > email app icon Exchange.
  2. Enter the Email address and Password for the email account and then tap Next.
