Overview

This article will walk you through how to add your employee email to your phone's email client in a variety of ways.

Android

Through the Outlook App

  1. Input first.last@mso.umt.edu email address and hit Next.
  2. The app should automatically detect that it is an Exchange account. If not, click the question mark at the type and hit "change account provider", then choose Exchange.
  3. Turn on the "Advanced Settings" toggle.
  4. Input ***messaging.umt.edu*** as the server.
  5. Input UM\first.last as the domain\username.
  6. Have them input their domain password.
  7. Click "done", and it should be good to go!

In your devices "Accounts" menu

  1. Go into Settings, click "Accounts", then"Add Account".
  2. Click the "Exchange" (or possibly "Corporate", depending on the phone) account type.
  3. Have them input their first.last@mso.umt.edu email account. Click next.
  4. Have them input their domain\username (um\first.last) and their domain password.
  5. Change server to messaging.umt.edu.
  6. Check "Use secure connection (SSL)" or select "SSL/TLS" security type in the drop-down menu.
  7. The default port 443 will work, so just click "next!"
  8. It may ask for additional security/administrator permissions that need to be approved for the account to be added.

Note: Some Android phones will not work with this configuration - if you receive an error change the server to be mso.umt.edu and see if that works. You may also have to set up a lock screen in order to meet the security settings necessary to finish the process.

  2. The app should automatically detect that it is an Exchange account. If not, click the question mark at the type and hit "change account provider", then choose Exchange.

  4. Input ***messaging.umt.edu*** as the server.
  5. Input UM\first.last as the domain\username.
  6. Have them input their domain password.
