Configure a New Smartphone or Tablet for Ag Exchange Mail

Posted: December 9, 2016

Gift-giving and December go together like Aunt Gert’s fruitcake and the stuff that Uncle Norville says is eggnog. If you get a new mobile device and want to immediately start sending and receiving your work email messages through the College’s exchange server, there is no need to wait for IT staff to return from holiday break to get it set up!

The holidays often bring gifts, and sometimes that gift is a new smart phone or tablet.  If you would like to configure a new device to send and receive mail, contacts and/or calendar items using the College’s Exchange mail server we have information and resources that can help.   We have step-by-step instructions for two systems with the greatest market share – Android and iOS.   In both of these documents your steps may be a little different based on your specific OS version – but you should be able to use these steps as a general guide.

It would be a daunting task to write and continually revise step-by-step setup instructions for every device manufactured and every OS installed – Kindle, iPhone, Android phone, Chrome, Fire and many others.  If the steps above are not helpful for your device, here are some of the most commonly requested pieces of information that may be helpful.  In a worst-case scenario you can share this information with your device’s tech support or vendor.
