Setting up E-mail on Mobile Phones or a Home Computer

Every cellphone is a little bit different, but here are some general setup options.

  1. In your E-mail App or Accounts Settings choose Microsoft Exchange or Corporate E-mail
  2. Enter your E-mail Address in the appropriate box
  3. Enter your Password in the appropriate box. This the same password that is set for your Star ID. *Most phones (like the iPhone) will often auto-detect the rest of information from here, if not see the rest of the instructions.
  4. If a Username is required,
    Staff: enter your "Your StarID"@minnstate.edu
    Students: enter in your "Your StarID"@go.minnstate.edu
  5. If a Server is required: outlook.office365.com
  6. Enable SSL if asked.
  7. If these steps don't appear to work, shut down the device and restart it.
