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.    

 

How to Set up Outlook for Android

1. Open the Google Play store on your device.

2. Search for Microsoft Outlook and tap to  Install .  

3. Once installed, tap to  Open the Outlook app.  

4. Once the Outlook app opens, tap  Get Started

 

5.  Enter your  full College email address  (ending with @mc3.edu) and press  Continue

6.   Once redirected to the MC3 login page, provide your  password  and then press  Sign In.

7. Tap Get the app

 

8. Tap to  Install  the Intune Company Portal app.  This app is required and will manage the College data on your personal device.
