Need to set up your OKWUstudents email account on your iPhone, iPod, or iPad? Here’s how to do it.
(Note: The following steps were tested on Apple’s IOS 7.0.2)

  1. Go to ‘Settings
    IOSsettings
  2. Scroll down and find: ‘Mail, Contacts, Calendars
    mailContactsCalendars
  3. Click ‘Add Account
    addAccount
  4. Select ‘Exchange
    selectExchange
  5. Fill in the fields shown as follows:
    1. Email: Your full email address (ex. john.smith@okwustudents.edu)
    2. Password: Your account password
    3. Description: What you would like this account to show up as in your list of email accounts (ex OKWU Students Email)
      emailInfo

Tip: By default your IOS device will only sync and store 1 week of email. If you want to quickly search for messages that are more then a week old you can store up to 1 month of emails on your device (storage space permitting). To store up to 1 month of emails go into ‘Settings’  > ‘Mail, Contacts, Calendars’ > and chose your OKWUstudents.edu account. Next select ‘Mail Days to Sync’, and chose how far back you would like to sync mail.
