With a bigger push towards Cloud based services, I have decided to put down a quick reference on how to configure the iPhone to work with Microsoft’s Onlince Services (BPOS).
The starting place is to read Microsoft’s Help and How to section – http://www.microsoft.com/online/help/en-us/helphowto/914df3cf-0135-46a7-a975-fd767b6d9a96.htm
- On the iPhone, go to Settings> Mail Contacts, Calendar> Add Account…> Microsoft Exchange
- Fill in the relevant details
- The iPhone will Verify the information and will bring up a new field. Type in the relevant field depending on the location of your region in the Mobile Device URLs section here – http://www.microsoft.com/online/help/en-us/helphowto/c0a1a4b9-111f-4bd4-8fab-8147344cd278.htm. Remove the “https://” ie. For Australia, use “red003.mail.apac.microsoftonline.com”
- Select the information you want to synchronise. That’s it.
