Droid Setup for Outlook Email

Droid setup varies depending upon the provider, droid model and operating system.  Microsoft ActiveSync does not work with all droids due to the unique differences between these devices.

However there are common elements that are generally required.

Your email address userid@unmc.edu
Password Same password you use to log into Outlook

UNMC Employees enter  UNMC_domain 

UNMC Physicians enter UNMCphysicians

TNMC Employees enter Olympus

ID Enter your Outlook ID (examples include kstrohbe or kim.strohbehn)
Server Name as.unmc.edu
Certificates check both use secure connection and accept all SSL certificates (not all Droids have this second option)
4 Digit Pin

Forces 4 digit Pin, if this isn't already setup

Troubleshooting upgrade operating system







This setup will enforce a 4 digit pin on your Droid device (If you don’t set this up you will see an error message indicating that account security settings must be updated). Steps may vary slightly depending upon your current operating system.
