Configuring your iPhone/iPod Touch to access Exchange

 

These steps will enable your iPhone/iPod Touch to connect to the Exchange server enabling you access to Email, as well as (if interested), the exchange calendar and contacts.

 

These instructions were created on the new iPhone 3Gs with software version 3.0.1. If your iPhone/iPod Touch has a different version of software, these instructions may not look precisely the same, but should still work. If you have questions, please contact the Help Desk.

 

 

1)      From the start page, click on the Mail icon.

 

 

Please note that if you have set up other mail accounts, you will need to go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account…

 

2)      Click on the Microsoft Exchange icon option

 

 

3)      At the Exchange page, enter your information as follows:

·         Email: <Your email address>

o   Staff & faculty can use firstname.lastname@uas.alaska.edu

o   Students will need to use username@uas.alaska.edu)

·         Domain: ua

·         Username: <Your UA Username>

·         Password: ********

 

·         Click Next

 

 

4)      Enter the Exchange server information:

·         Server: mailgw.uas.alaska.edu

 

 

5)      The Exchange account should be verified and continue onto further settings:

 

       

 

6)      If you would like, turn on the Contacts & Calendar syncing:

·         Slide the Contacts switch to On

·         NOTE: If you would like to keep the existing contacts on your phone, click Keep on iPhone. (The ability to keep both local and exchange details only appears to be available on phones with the iPhone 3.0.x software.) If your phone doesn’t have a “Keep on My iPhone” button, you may want to update your phone via iTunes.)

 

 

·         Slide the Calendar switch to On

·         NOTE: If you would like to keep your existing local calendar on your phone, click Keep on iPhone. (The ability to keep both local and exchange details only appears to be available on phones with the iPhone 3.0.x software.) If your phone doesn’t have a “Keep on My iPhone” button, you may want to update your phone via iTunes.)

 

 

7)      Your iPhone should now be connected to Exchange. By default, the exchange email, contacts & calendar will be pushed from the server to your phone meaning that it will update automatically as new items are available.

 

 

8)      Enjoy!
