Accessing Your Office365 Baruchmail E-mail Account on Any Mobile Device


You can use a mobile device to access information in your Office365 account. On this page you will find the settings for POP, IMAP, SMTP and ActiveSync/Exchange to aid in setting up your mobile devices. We also have provided instructions for setting up your e-mail account on most common mobile devices. Lastly, there are links for additional support.

The first step is to log into your Office365 Baruchmail e-mail account via the web:

https://www.outlook.com/baruchmail.cuny.edu

http://mail.office365.com

Once logged into your e-mail account, click on Options and then click on "Learn how to get Direct Push e-mail on your mobile phone." If you set up an Exchange/ActiveSync account on your device, the information you sync may include e-mail messages, calendars, contacts and task data. If you set up a POP3 or IMAP4 account, you will only be able to send and receive e-mail.

Use these settings to access your Office365 e-mail on a mobile device or when using an email application:
