Microsoft Exchange on the iPhone

Kristen Hewes - Hardware Technician

This week, my blog is about setting up Microsoft Exchange on an iPhone:

1. In Settings, go to Mail, Contacts

2. Click Add Account

3. Click Microsoft Exchange

4. Enter the information on the account screen

* Your email address must match exactly! Your user name and password will be the information you use to log into the computer, which may not be the same as your email information.

5. Once you have that all entered correctly, click Next

6. If you get a message stating that your server could not be verified, click Continue, and enter the name of the server.  This is the same address you entered to get to Outlook Web Access.

7. You may get a second warning stating that the server cannot be identified.  This is due to your server having an untrusted or invalid SSL certificate. Once again, click Continue.

8. If you receive a message that the Exchange account cannot be verified, click Okay, and then check that all of the information has been entered correctly. This message is often displayed because of an incorrect password or Domain name.

9. Once it is validated, choose what you want synced with your iphone and click Save.

At this point your iPhone will synchronize. It can take some time depending on the connection speed.

And, there we have it!

Have a great week.
