Setting Up Exchange Mailbox on Outlook for Android

To set up your Northserver Exchange mailbox on your Android mobile phone or tablet device, first go to the Google Play Store and install the Microsoft Outlook app.

Once installed, open the Outlook app. The next step depends on whether this is the first mailbox you have added to your device.

Step 1

Adding First Mailbox

If this is the first mailbox you have added to the device, it should automatically start the Add Mailbox Wizard.

Step 4

After a few moments, the necessary settings should be downloaded from our servers. This may not work automatically if your domain is not registered through us, in which case you will need to enter the details manually. You can Raise a Support Ticket if you would like us to help you configure your domain correctly.

Enter your e-mail address again in the 'Domain\Username' box, and your password. If the server name is not populated then enter 'exchange.northserver.co.uk'. You may optionally enter a description for this mailbox, such as 'Work E-mail' or 'Football Club E-mails'. To save the settings, touch the 'tick' icon in the top right corner.
