Set up Outlook for Android

In this article you will learn how to download and set up the Outlook for Android app.  This requires the Microsoft Intune app to manage the College data on your device.  

 

Microsoft Outlook and other Microsoft apps may be used on Faculty and Staff personal devices that meet the Personal Device Security Standard.

Please review the Standard Highlights before proceeding.

 

Personal Device Security Standard Highlights

1. Notify the MC3 Help Desk immediately if your personal device, containing College data, is sold, traded-in, lost, stolen, or otherwise disposed of.    
2. Use a strong PIN to protect the College data.    
3. Do not store or access Strictly Confidential Data on devices that are not College issued.
