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

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
