We recommend the Outlook app from Microsoft.
- If you don't have Outlook for Android installed, download it from the Google Play Store
- Open the Outlook app, swipe through the introductions, and then tap Get Started
- Select the mail account you want to add: Office 365
- Sign-in as email@example.com and enter your universal password.
- To learn more about using Outlook for Android, see Frequently asked questions about Outlook for iOS and Android. This FAQ explains the Focused Inbox and how to switch to a single Inbox if you prefer to disable this feature.
You can configure the native Android Mail app to connect to your Office 365 email, calendar, and address list. Android devices vary by device type and Android version. You may need to consult the online Help for your device to determine the location of these settings, but the same server name and username formats should apply. If you would like assistance, bring your device by the Help Desk in HH 123 and we will configure it for you.
What about the native Mail and Calendar app for my Android phone?
Non-Outlook Mail and Calendar apps for Android are no longer able to connect to your WWU email and calendar, as of 9/1/2020. Please use the Outlook app.
IMPORTANT: You may be prompted to enter a passcode for your device if it does not have one. You can choose a simple 4-digit passcode or a more complex password. If you use a finger-swipe to unlock your device, you will need to change to a passcode. iOS7 does support more complex passcodes if you would prefer something more secure than a 4-digit code. This passcode is for your device only. It is not linked to your Western computer accounts, but we do require that you protect your device with a passcode if you want to use it to access your Western email.
