Setting up Outlook on Android devices

Since there are multiple variations on version of the Android operating system, there is no set-up guide. The server settings are as follows:

Server type: Microsoft Exchange
Server: outlook.federation.edu.au
Domain: uob
E-mail address: (your FedUni email address e.g. a.staffmember@federation.edu.au)
Username: (your FedUni staff user name e.g. astaffmember)
Password: (your FedUni staff password)
Use secure connection / SSL: Yes
Port: 443

You may be asked to allow the server to make changes to your system remotely. This is a security feature and you will need to choose 'allow' so that you can receive e-mail.
