Office 365, Email, Configure the Mail and Calendar app for iPhone or iPad

Office 365 email configuration steps for Mail and Calendar app for iOS.

  1. Open the Settings app, scroll down, and tap Mail. It has a gradient blue icon with a white envelope, and will be in the same section as other built-in apps (Contacts, Calendar, Notes, Phone, etc.)
  2. Tap Accounts to see a list of accounts you've already set up in iOS.
  3. Tap Add Account at the bottom of this list, and select Microsoft Exchange from the options.
  4. Enter your full University email address (usually your NetID followed by @illinois.edu) in the Email field. The Description field will automatically fill in "Exchange", though you can change it to however you'd like the account to be titled on the Accounts list reached in step 2.
  5. Tap Next in the upper-right corner. A popup will appear asking about discovering your Exchange account information, and if you'd like to Configure Manually or Sign In. Select Sign In.
  6. A University-branded sign in screen will load, with your email already filled in and a prompt for your password. Use the same password as for other University services.
  7. You may be asked to perform 2-factor authentication if you have it configured for your account.
  8. Read the warning about iOS Accounts, and select Accept.
  9. Select the Exchange-related features you'd like to use for your account, and select Save.

The account should now be configured, but may take some time to load all of the messages.

These settings have been verified to be accurate using an iPhone XS Max with iOS 15.5, but should be similar for any iPhone or iPad with any relatively recent version of iOS.

These steps can be used to add multiple University accounts to the same device, if required.
