How do I set up Exchange ActiveSync on an Android mobile phone?

  2. Type your full e-mail address, for example username@clemson.edu, and your password, and then select Next.
  3. Select Exchange account. This option may be named Exchange ActiveSync on some versions of Android.
  4. Enter the following account information and select Next.
      • Domain\Username Type your full e-mail address in this box. If Domain and Username are separate text boxes in your version of Android, Domain = "Campus" and Username = Your UserID.

    Note: On some versions of Android, you need to use the domain\username format. For example, "Campus\Userid".

    • Password Use the password that you use to access your account.
    • Exchange Server http://xmail.clemson.edu
