Access shared mailboxes from your iPhone using Outlook Mobile
With so many people needing to access so many mailboxes, from places other than their desktop or laptop computer, it makes sense to configure your mobile phone to be able to see shared mailboxes.
Using Apple Mail, you’d need to add a separate mailbox and it gets very messy with login credentials. Thankfully, there’s an easir way using Outlook for Mobile. This works on iPhones, iPads and also Android-based phones and tablets, too.
Apple Mail – It’s built in, but is it any good for Office 365?
Eddie’s recent video guide shows you step-by-step how to connect your Office 365 mailbox, contacts and calendar to your iPhone or iPad. If you didn’t get to see it, then here is the video on his IT Support Service YouTube channel.
Apple Mail is great for people who are used to using that app. It brings Office 365 to a familiar environment.
It’s fairly good at the job, too. It synchronises your emails with what you see in Outlook on your laptop or desktop PC. It makes sure that you have your calendar with you, and it even synchronises Outlook with your iPhone’s address book.
So, what more could you possible want? Well, some people like it, and others don’t. That might not be enough to make the switch on its own but there are some tiny features in the Outlook App that you will miss out on if you stick to the Apple Mail app.
Also, consistency is a big thing these days. We find Office 365 is tricky to guide users through over the phone if they have an Android mobile device. In contrast, the Outlook App on Android just… well, it just works. So, if half your staff have iPhones, and the other half have Android, then maybe there’s some mileage in using the Outlook app across the board – so everyone knows how it works.
There will be an Office 365 on Outlook iOS App installation video guide soon, so watch this space!
