Setting up your @northwestern.edu (Exchange) account on Windows Phone

This article describes how to configure an @northwestern.edu email account on Windows Phone 8, 8.1, or 10.

  1. Navigate to the App list screen and select Settings.
  2. Select Email & Accounts > Add an account > Exchange.
  3. Enter your email address and NetID password. Select Sign In when you are finished.
    • A new screen will pop up prompting you to try again.
  4. Delete anything in the Username field and enter your NetID.
  5. Input ads in the Domain field.
  6. If you see a Server address field, enter mail.northwestern.edu .
