This page provides instructions on how to set up your Office 365 email account on your mobile device, whether it be a tablet or smartphone running Android or iOS. The settings and instructions have been tested to the fullest extent possible. From feedback and support postings on the vendor/manufacturer’s websites we recognize that these settings may not function properly under all circumstances.
Not sure if you have an Office 365 email account or not?
If your email address ends in ‘@goucher.edu’ (Ex: John.Doe@goucher.edu), you most likely have your email account on Office 365.
If you have an @mail.goucher.edu email account, follow this article instead: Adding your mail.goucher.edu email account to a mobile device
For both iOS and Android, there is a Microsoft Outlook app in both App Stores that we highly recommend using to set up your email on your mobile device. The setup process is very easy, and the app automatically integrates your calendar and email all into one application, as well as allow you to add other email accounts if you wish.
Step 1: Download the Microsoft Outlook App from your App Store and run it. It will prompt you to log in. The format to type in is as follows:
(your username)@goucher.edu (Ex: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Step 2: On the next screen, type in your Goucher account password.
Step 3: After login is completed, it will ask if you want to add another account; you can either choose to or skip and go straight to your inbox.
iOS Mail App
For Android, we do not recommend anything other than the Outlook app because of how different phone manufacturers set up their mail applications.
For iOS we still highly recommend the Outlook app, but the stock Mail app is still an option if you wish to set it up there. Here is the process for setting up your Goucher email account (as of iOS 11):
Step 1: Open the Settings app, and scroll down until you see “Accounts and Passwords”. Choose that, and click the “Add Account” button. The mailbox type is “Exchange”.
Step 2: In the email field, type your full email address (Firstname.Lastname@goucher.edu). The description field can be set to whatever you want (“Goucher”, for instance). Click “Next” in the top corner.
Step 3: In the email field, type your full email address. The description field can be set to whatever you want (“Goucher”, for instance). Click “Next” in the top corner.
Step 4: A pop-up will come up asking if you want to “Configure Manually” or “Sign In”. Choose “Sign In”.
Step 5: Sign into your Microsoft account with your Microsoft ID (email@example.com) and password.
Step 7: The final screen will ask what items you want to import with your account. Mail is required, but you can also choose the other items if you wish. Click “Save” to confirm the account is added.
Step 8: Open your Mail app, and your Goucher email account should now appear. Note: You may need to press and swipe from the top down to refresh the view.
