Adding an Exchange Account to your Android 6.0+ Device

The following walkthrough will add your UVM Exchange account to the native Android Email and Calendar apps on your smartphone or tablet. Please note that there are many different variations of the Android operating system. Your Android device may have different menus and prompts than seen in the images below. However, the configuration steps should be similar enough to follow along.

Note: While UVM is not currently enforcing mobile device security policies when you connect to Exchange, but we do intend on having mandatory security policies in the future, potentially before the end of 2016. In the meantime, we strongly recommend that you have security controls on your mobile device if you are accessing University resources, including email.  At a minimum, we encourage you to have a security PIN or passcode and an idle timeout of 10 minutes or less.

Removing your existing UVM IMAP account:

Your device may have an old UVM email account configured using IMAP from the old email system. We recommend removing this IMAP account before adding your Exchange account. If you have not set up email previously on your device, you can skip these steps and go Directly to Adding your Exchange Account.

  1. From the Home screen, open the Application Menu.
    Android-Exchange-1
  2. From the Menu, open Settings (you will probably need to scroll down to find it).
    Android-Exchange-2
  3. In Settings, scroll down to the Personal section and tap on Accounts to continue.
    Android-Exchange-3
  4. This screen will display a list of the accounts currently added to your device. If you see Personal (IMAP) on this list, tap on it.

    If not, skip ahead to Adding your Exchange Account.
