Sync an Outlook Live mail account to an Android device (Froyo)

I was just asked this question, so I thought I’d do a quick tutorial. Here is the method if you are on Froyo. For the new method addressing ICS, see this post here. I expect that other versions of Android should be similar.

Edit: I recently created a new post documenting the process on a Samsung Galaxy S3 with ICS running Touchwiz, HERE.

  1. First, open Settings and select Accounts

  2. Tap "Add account"

  3. Tap "Corporate Sync"

  4. To find the correct "server", open Outlook Live email in your web browser. The server is in the address bar. it will be something.outlook.com.

  5. Hit Next, and the account will be added

  6. Lastly, you can select which items you want to sync, and how many days

  7. That is really all there is to it. Send and receive email, update your calendar. Works perfectly!

But, touchwiz aside, these settings, if not the complete instructions should apply across various devices, although some of the screens and/or settings may appear or be named slightly differently. If these instructions don’t apply to you at all, try the old Froyo post, HERE. […]
