“Domain\User name” is the field in which you need to enter your exactly what it asks, the domain you are trying to log into, and your user name. This is followed by your normal password in the next box down.

The “Exchange Server” box is the server that your Android device will try and log into to collect you emails. This for example could be along the lines of “remote.test.co.uk”

After the details are all filled in, tap on “Next” to proceed with the setup of the Microsoft Exchange account.


The Android device should then proceed to connect to the server and test the connection to the Microsoft Exchange email account and the server.

If it is successful, then the following options should be presented to you. These fields are filled in with the defaults, but can be changed by simply tapping on one and modifying the selection.

This should conclude the setup of the Microsoft Exchange email account. Your emails should automatically be synced with the Android device. To access your emails, simply go into your main applications menu and click on the “Email” app.
