Exchange Online Email - iPhone native (default) mail app

Problem:

User needs to change their mail configuration in the native iPhone mail app after being migrated to Exchange Online.

 

Resolution:

User will need to have their UTHSCSA Exchange account already configured on their iPhone to be able to edit it to use new settings for Exchange Online Email which is part of Office 365.  Otherwise, they’ll need to add it as a new account.  Steps for both are below.

 

Steps to modify an existing account:

1.             Go to Settings, Passwords and Accounts.
