In order to access Microsoft Office 365 e-mails, contacts, calendar and tasks on your Android-based devices, you need to set up a Microsoft Exchange account on the Android. Unfortunately each model of the android cell phone may vary in changing the email on the phone. The following info is just one of the examples for changing an android device. Keep in mind that when it asks for userid it needs the full email address (email@example.com). There is no domain used for the cloud exchange so that would be deleted. The webmail.nr.edu is changed to office.outlook365.com.
There are some other options you may choose such as ‘Notify me when email arrives’, ‘Sync contacts from this account’ and choose the length options, ‘Three days’, ‘One day’ and ‘One Week’ under ‘Amount to synchronize’ option. And you are done; now you can access Microsoft Office 365 Outlook mails, calendars, contacts on your Android phone.
The VCCS utilizes Google's gmail for @email.vccs.edu e-mail accounts.
If your device has an option for setting up a new "gmail" or "Google" account, choose that option and enter your VCCS username and password.
If your device does not have a "gmail" or "Google" account option, your e-mail account might still be able to be accessed using POP. You must first log into your @email.vccs.edu account using a web browser and enable "POP" in your account's settings. Google has several tutorials about how to setup your device to communicate with your @email.vccs.edu e-mail: Google POP Tutorials
