How to Add an Exchange Account to the iPad

Save

Microsoft describes its Exchange account is an "email-based collaborative communications server for businesses." Apple's iPad tablet device allows you to add Exchange accounts to the device's "Mail" app, to keep you in touch with your business email server. Setting up an Exchange account on an iPad is just like setting up any other kind of email account on the device.

  • Tap the "Settings" icon on the device's home screen, followed by the "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" option. Tap the "Add Account..." option, followed by the "Microsoft Exchange" option.

  • Type the Exchange account's email address in the space labeled "Email." Type the account's domain in the space labeled "Domain." Type the account's username in the space labeled "Username." Type the Exchange server's address in the space labeled "Server." Type the account's password in the space labeled "Password." Type a description for the account in the space labeled "Description." If you do not know what to enter into one or more of these spaces, ask your Exchange server administrator for assistance.

  • Tap the "Next" button to connect to the Exchange server. Allow several seconds for the device to connect to the server. Once connected, you are asked what type of content you want to sync with the server. Slide the slider located to the right of the data that you do not want to be synced to the "Off" position. Slide the slider located to the right of the data that you do want to be synced to the "On" position. By default, the device's "Mail," "Contacts" and "Calendar" data are set to sync.

  • Tap the "Save" button to save the account settings.
