How to set Exchange up on an Android device (version 4 or superior)

Automatic configuration | Manual configuration | Limitations due to Android & workarounds

Automatic configuration

For security reasons, the Outlook app for Android is blocked on our servers. You can find more information here (in French).

The Ci strongly recommends the use of the native Android apps (all functions offered by Exchange are however not available).

1. Go to “Settings,” and then click on “Add account”
2. Choose “Entreprise”


3. Fill in the “E-mail address” and “password” fields
4. Click the “Next” button (if you mistype, click here)


5. Select the options and synchronisation period you want
6. Click “Next”


7. Allow the Exchange server as administrator by clicking the “Activate” button (this lets you remotely erase your device in case you lose it or it gets stolen)


Manual configuration

If the automatic configuration does not succeed you can follow the same procedure up to step 4 and click the “Manual configuration” button. You now have to fill in the fields with the following information:

  • Username: ad\your_unil_username
  • Password : your_unil_password
  • Server :
  • Check the Use secured connexion (SSL) box


Limitations due to Android & workarounds

Android is for the time being limited in its support of the Exchange services:

  • there is only one colour for calendars
  • there is no support of tasks and notes systems

These applications allow you to work around these issues (the Ci does however not guarantee that they work and offers no support whatsoever for them):
