How do I setup Exchange Online for my iOS mobile device?

You can access UIC's Exchange Online email service using the official Microsoft Outlook app.

  1. Download the Outlook for iOS app from the App Store. Open the app and tap “Get Started”

           
     
  2. Choose whether or not to allow the Outlook app to send notifications of incoming email and events.

         
     
  3. On the “Add Email Account” screen, type your full UIC email (netid@uic.edu), then tap add account. It should auto-detect your account type. If it can’t, or is having trouble, a button will appear below “Add Account” that will allow you to choose the account type. If this happens, choose “Microsoft/Office 365”.
