Setting Up Olin Email on your iOS Device

From the Home screen on your iPhone:

  2. Select Microsoft Exchange
  • Email: joseph.student@students.olin.edu
  • Server: webmail.olin.edu
  • Domain: olin.edu

Then select the services you would like to sync. Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and Reminders (Tasks on outlook) all work.

Olin Email Folders and Rules on your iOS Device

iOS Mail will respect your mail rules and sort emails into folders on your iOS device, but only if you set up the rules on the server. To set up rules on the server, set the rules in webmail (you must use Internet Explorer) at http://webmail.olin.edu under Options > Rules.

Then, you can set iOS Mail to push folders other than your inbox to your device. This means you will still get emails as soon as they come in, even if they are sorted straight out of your inbox.

  1. Go to Settings > Mail > Your Exchange Account > Mail Folders to Push
  2. Select the folders you would like to be pushed to your phone.
