These are the instructions for setting up your Employee (Staff) email on your smartphone. These instructions work for both iOS and Android phones.
In order to maintain the same functionality with your email, calendars, and shared mailboxes, you should download the Outlook app from the iTunes Store (for iOS phones) or the Play Store (Android phones). Once installed, when you first open Outlook on your phone it will begin walking you thru setting up your email account.
Type your credentials in using your ID# followed by @park.edu, for example email@example.com. Use your regular Windows password. Finally, tap Sign In.
Third-Party Email Apps (non-Outlook)...
NOTE: Each manufacturer of smart phone has a email program made by that manufacturer (iOS, Windows Phone, Samsung, LG, etc.), and while you can certainly use a Third-Party email app, Park University Help Desk does not:
- Guarantee third-party apps will work
- Offer continuous support for third-party apps in the event they stop working or crash
By using the Outlook app for your smartphone, your app will always have the latest updates issued by Microsoft and stand the highest probability of uptime should Microsoft deem it necessary to make changes to any settings.
Below are the settings you will need to set up a third party email app (non-Outlook) on your smart phone or tablet. Due to the extensive number of third-party apps, Help Desk will not be able to set these up for you. Help Desk can only support the Outlook app for smartphones and tablets.
Email address: (Your regular Park address) firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Domain\username: a backslash followed by your ID# @park.edu. For example: \firstname.lastname@example.org
Password: your regular Park password
Exchange server: outlook.office365.com
Use secure connection (SSL): yes, or check the box for it
Use client certificate: no, or do not check the box for it
Description or nickname: Park Email
