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 Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) settings.
Exchange Versus IMAP
There are several advantages to setting up your mobile device to use Exchange rather than IMAP settings. Exchange only requires that you provide your email address and password for set up; IMAP, however, requires additional 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.
