iPad – Setting up Exchange Email

Tap the “Settings” icon from the home screen, then “Mail, Contacts, Calendars


In “Mail, Contacts, Calendars“, tap “Add Account.”


Tap the “Microsoft 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:

  1. Your full Email address
  2. Leave the Domain field blank
  3. Your Exchange Username
    Note: This is usually your Windows logon Username
  4. Your Password
  5. You can optionally modify the Description to something other than your email address


Tap “Next” and the iPad will attempt to auto-discover and configure the Exchange account
Note: This can take up to 5 minutes on slow networks or if autodiscovery is not supported


If your Exchange server configuration does not support Autodiscovery, it will fail (saying it couldn’t validate your account), and you will have to manually enter the Server name


Tap “Next” and the iPad will verify the configuration


By default, the iPad will synchronize all three data types (Mail, Contacts, and Calendars) with your Exchange ActiveSync server, but you can turn one or more off if you wish
