How to setup Exchange email on Ice Cream Sandwich (Android ICS)

With a lot of new Android phones getting the latest Android platform, 4.0 or ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich), I wanted to update my previous post with this a step-by-step tutorial on how to add an Exchange account on your Android phone running ICS.  The example here is with my Sprint Nexus S 4G.  Just follow the easy steps below and you will have your Exchange email, Exchange Calendar, Exchange Tasks and Exchange Contacts smoothly syncing on your Android Smartphone. (Note some items have been blurred for privacy reasons)


Again, my recommendation is to check your corporate policy to see if it’s ok to add your email account to your personal phone. This might be against company policy.  If you get the green light you will need the following:
1. Your username and password for the account.
2. The Exchange server address, usually this is the Outlook Web Access address.
3. Domain name for your network.

There’s a couple ways to do this, I’m gonna go through the “Settings Menu”

Go to your home page and click on the menu button to bring up the Settings option. Then click on the System settings option.







Next, select Accounts and sync.








Next, click Add account.








Next, select Corporate.








Enter your Exchange email address and password. Then click Next.







Enter your: DOMAIN\username, exactly as instructed and the Exchange server address (This is usually your OWA (Outlook Web Access ) address. If you are not sure, ask your Exchange administrator. Make sure you click on both SSL options, then click Next.






This screen is a good sign. You are allowing the server to communicate with your phone!!! Yay.

Click OK.







The next to screens are your account settings. These are my settings. You can change these settings based on your administrator’s recommendations or what suits your purpose.

If you get a lot of mail, you might not want to select push, instead change the option to a more reasonable peroid, like every 5 or 10 minutes. This will help conserve your battery life. If push is enabled, then any time and every time you get mail, it will be “pushed” to your device.






This next screen enables some additional security settings, click Activate.








Next give your widget a friendly name, Then click Next and you are done!

If you have any questions or corrections please feel free to leave a comment.

    Thanks – can you describe how to set up SMIME and encryption?

      Hafa Adai Ed,
      Your name sounds so familiar. I used to live in Guam. With regards to your question, unfortunately we have not had a chance to implement encryption, we’ve discussed it but have not really moved on this project. If we do implement some sort of encryption we probably will go with some sort of 3rd party solution. So I have to defer to other blogs and websites.

    First of all I would like to say terrific blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
    mind prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Appreciate

      Thanks for the comments, but I’m not that good, I just write, edit and write some more.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of
    any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

      Sorry haven’t used Twitter on WordPress yet, but I heard “My Twitter Widget” was a great plugin for WordPress.
