Enter your full email address.
In the Server Address field enter the external name or IP address of the Exchange server (depending on how the administrator has configured the Exchange server – contact your IT department for the correct settings to use). This is usually the same address used to access Outlook Web Access webmail, in the form "exchange.mycompany.com"
In the Domain field enter in the domain which your user account is in – again contact your IT department for the correct settings to use. Usually, if you have a Windows PC in the office, this will be the contents of the "Log Into" field you use to access your PC (the third field below both "username" and "password" when logging in).
Enter your username and password – these will be the same details you use to log into your Windows PC.
Tick the option to use SSL if required by your Exchange server. If you don’t know whether your Exchange server does or not, a handy way of telling is checking the address used to access webmail – if it begins with "https" then it does use SSL. If it just uses "http" (and doesn’t redirect to an https address) then there is no need to use SSL.

Tap Next. If your Exchange server uses a self-signed Exchange certificate, you may be warned that the identity of the certificate cannot be verified, select the option to Continue:
