Add your Hosted Exchange Email Account to Apple Mail


If you use Mac OSX, you will have access to the Apple Mail program as part of your Mac. Apple Mail supports adding Exchange account to it.

Apple Mail is not an application directly supported by Microsoft. Some features will not be available when using Apple Mail. We recommend using Outlook for Mac if you have this available to you.

You will need to have the password for your account ready when setting up in Apple Mail.

Your account will be added into the Apple Mail application. If you have select to sync items other than mail, these items will show in their respective applications, e.g. Contacts in the Contacts application, Calendar items in the Calendar application etc.
