Adding Emails On Devices

School email on your mobile device

Adding your school email to your mobile device is a great way to keep on top of all the emails you may receive. The process is fairly straightforward, but differs slightly for each brand of device. This guide will briefly go through the necessary steps for Apple and Android devices. If you’re unsure as to which device you have or find any problems with the steps below, please speak with your R&M technician who will be only happy to help.

Before we start, as emails sent to you may contain confidential information, it is imperative your device has a locking mechanism. This means when you pick up the phone, you need to enter a code to gain access. Should your device get lost or stolen you are then safe in the knowledge your information is protected.

Adding emails on Apple devices:

  1. Find ‘settings’ on your device
  2. Then ‘mail, contacts & calendars’
  3. ‘Accounts’ at the top
  4. Add account
  5. At the next screen, be sure to select ‘Exchange’
  6. Enter your email address and type in the description for your account, (e.g. School)
  7. Then enter your password
  8. Provided your details are correct you should now see 3 blue ticks. Congratulations, your account is configured.
