Setting up your eMail / Exchange

Android has built-in Exchange support so you can download and send emails from your work account, and you can set it up in no time. Once you follow the steps in this tutorial, you will have your Exchange email, Exchange Calendar, and Exchange Contacts happily syncing on your GoTab.

Please ensure that you always follow your employer’s security and privacy policy regarding your account.

What you will need

The following information is necessary in order to set up your Exchange account:

  • Exchange server address (this will most likely be an OWA address).
  • Username and password for your account.
  • Domain name for your account.

  2. Enter your email address and password.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Click Exchange Account.
  5. Enter your: DOMAINusername, password, and Exchange server address.
  6. Check Use Secure Connection and Accept All SSL Certificates.
  7. After authentication, check the boxes associated with the features you want to include such as Push, Amount To Sync, Notifications, Sync Contacts, Sync Calendar, Sync Calendar Amount.
