How Do I set up USC Upstate Email on My Android phone?

Step 1: From the Applications menu, select "Email."

Step 2: Select "Add Account."

Step 3: Type your full email address, for example username@email.uscupstate.edu, and your password. Select "Next."

Step 4: Select account type. Usually this will be either "Exchange account" or "Corporate Sync".

Step 5: Enter the following account information and select "Next."

  • Domain\Username: Students, use your full email address: username@email.uscupstate.edu; faculty/staff, use just your username.
  • Password: Enter the password that you use to access your account.
  • Exchange Server: Enter m.outlook.com for student accounts and mail.uscupstate.edu for faculty/staff accounts.

Step 6: As soon as your phone verifies the server settings, the options you can set up from the Account Options screen will include the following:

  • If you would like this to be your default email account on your mobile phone, check the box marked "Send email from this account by default."
  • Email checking frequency: The default value is Automatic (push). When you select this option, email messages will be sent to your phone as they arrive. We recommend only selecting this option if you have an unlimited data plan.
  • Amount to synchronize: This is the amount of mail you want to keep on your mobile phone. You can choose from several length options, including One day, Three days, and One week.
  • Notify me when email arrives: If you select this option, your mobile phone will notify you when you receive a new email message.
  • Sync contacts from this account: If you select this option, your contacts will be synchronized between your phone and your account.

Step 7: Select "Next" and then enter a name for this account and the name you want displayed when you send email to others.

Step 8: Select "Done" to complete the email setup and start using your account.
