Office 365 - Server and Account Configuration Settings

This document provides you with the necessary account information to configure an email/calendar client to your Office 365 account.

Important:

  • Only use this document if the client you are attempting to configure is not listed within: Office 365 - Set up your mobile device or desktop client.

  • For the best experience, we recommend that you connect to your Office 365 account using Outlook on the web, or through an email program that supports Exchange ActiveSync access such as Outlook 2013, Outlook 2010, Outlook 2016 for Mac, Outlook for Mac 2011, Apple Mail 10.6 Snow Leopard, Apple Mail 10.7 Lion.

  • Mobile devices, when configured for your Office 365 account via Exchange/ActiveSync protocol can be remotely wiped. After reading the information within the remote wipe document, if you have decided that you do not want to configure your device using Exchange/Active Sync protocol, you do have the option to connect via IMAP. If connected via IMAP, you will only have access to your email.
