IMPORTANT NOTE:  This information will be the same across all devices, but could be used in various combinations with the different versions of Android.  For instance, you might be asked to enter domain\username together, which would be either EMORYUNIVAD\netid@emory.edu  OR  emory.edu\netid@emory.edu depending on your Android version.

Always use your full email address for your username.  And always check the server settings as the Android might try and auto-configure them incorrectly.

c.  Server Address: outlook.office365.com

b.  Domain:  EMORYUNIVAD or emory.edu (you might have to try both depending on the version of Android)

e.  Password:  <your Emory password>

d.  Make sure the box for Use secure connection (SSL) is checked.
