Configuring Your Mobile Device for Office 365
This page provides links to documentation on configuring your mobile device to access your Office 365 account. You can set your email client to access your Office 365 email by using either Exchange or IMAP settings.
Exchange Versus IMAP
There are several advantages to setting your email client up to use Exchange settings rather than IMAP settings. With Exchange, you need to know only your email address and password in order to set up your account; if you wish to set your account up using IMAP, you will need to know server information. Exchange also provides direct access to the USC calendar that is a part of your Office 365 account.
At this time, ITS supports both methods of setting up your account.
