Configuring Android Devices

There are two options available for accessing W-Exchange from your mobile device. Using the exchange option provides access to email, calendar and contacts from the corresponding native apps build into your phone or tablet. The Microsoft Outlook app provides access to W-Exchange email, calendar (including shared calendars) and contacts from one convenient app. 

EXCHANGE SETUP

Exchange setup on Android varies between phone manufacturers. The settings will be the same across devices, but menu wording may vary slightly. 

  1. Open phone settings and select the Accounts or Accounts and sync section. Choose Add an Account.
  2. Choose Email. Some phones may call this ExchangeCorporate or Active Sync.
  3. Enter your Bronco NetID @wmich.edu and then tap Next. You will be redirected to the WMU Login service.
