General Overview

This article explains how to set up an iPhone to use the ActiveSync protocol for accessing the LSUMail e-mail system.

-- ActiveSync allows your phone to synchronize messages, contacts and calendar entries with your mail server.  The mail app may not actually mention ActiveSync but will instead refer to it as Corporate, Exchange or Outlook e-mail.
 

Configuration Steps

1. Remove any existing Exchange e-mail from your phone, if applicable.

      *** IMPORTANT NOTE ***

  • If your phone currently has an e-mail app that is accessing the old LSU Exchange e-mail system, you must remove the account before proceeding to Step 2. Otherwise, you will end up with duplicate e-mails, duplicate contacts & duplicate calendar entries.
