MS Exchange on Outlook for Android
Set up Outlook for Android for the first time
Start by installing Outlook for Android on your device from the Play store.
There are many versions of Outlook, many different Android devices and many versions of Android itself which makes it impossible to have instructions for every single combination. So these instructions are more of an outline.
It is because of the huge number of variations that makes it very difficult to support installing email on an Android device over the phone.
The following example was created on a Samsung S20, Android Version 12 and the current version of Outlook for Android.
Before you proceed you will need your email address and password. If you ever need to check your email credentials, browse to outlook.com and enter them. If you log on successfully, they are correct.
You will also need Outlook installed on your Android device – which can be downloaded and installed from the Google Play store.

If the email address you enter is incorrect or not an MS Exchange account, you will be taken to a different screen. Press back and try again.
Outlook will try to find your email credentials and if your email address is entered correctly and is an MS Exchange account, you will be taken to the screen below.

If your password is entered correctly, you will be asked if you would like to Add another account.
When you select MAYBE LATER, you will be taken straight to your email on your android device.
