Configuring the iPhone for Microsoft Online Services (BPOS)

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 –

  1. On the iPhone, go to Settings> Mail Contacts, Calendar> Add Account…> Microsoft Exchange
  2. Fill in the relevant details
    • Email: Your email address
    • Domain: Leave blank
    • Username: Your email address (the login to your BPOS account)
    • Password: Your Password
    • Description: Put in the email address or give it a friendly name
  3. 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 – Remove the “https://” ie. For Australia, use “”
  4. Select the information you want to synchronise. That’s it.
