The general procedure for setting up a Smart Phone or Tablet to use the new ESF mail system is as follows:
- Remove your current settings (varies by make/model of phone).
- Add a new email account.
- Identify the account as an Exchange account (if available).
- If asked for a Web/server address, use: outlook.esf.edu
- If asked, SSL is required
- Enter your email address and password.
- If asked for your username enter it as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org (iPhone/iPod/iPad) or ESFADMIN\username (Windows mobile/Droid)
- If asked, re-synchronize your device with the server
Most mobile devices will Autodiscover the correct settings for the ESF mail system. The discovery process may take up to 2 minutes. When this process is complete your device should correctly sync mail, calendar, and contacts. For some Android phones, synchronizing Contacts may pull entire campus directory into your phone.
