This page provides links to documentation on how to configure your mobile device to connect to your Office 365 account. Your email client can be set to access your Office 365 mail either using Microsoft Exchange or Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) settings.

Exchange versus IMAP

There are several advantages to setting up your mobile device to use Exchange over IMAP settings. Exchange only requires that you provide your email address and password during the configuration process; IMAP, on the other hand, requires additional server information. Exchange also provides direct access to the calendar that is a part of your Office 365 account.

At this time, ITS supports both methods of setting up your account.
