Configuring Android devices with Exchange Server

What you will need..

 

First and foremost, you will need an Android phone with a data plan. You will also need a working Microsoft Exchange account that is available externally to your company.  The following information is necessary in order to set up your Exchange account:

  • Exchange server address (this will most likely be an OWA address).
  • Username and password for account.
  • Domain name for account.

 

Note:  This information can be obtained from your Readycrest support representative.
