How Do I set up a Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync account for my Samsung Galaxy S3?

Last Update Date : Mar 23. 2018

To set up a Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync account please follow the steps below:

 

1. Please ensure that you have the following information to hand for entry into the account settings text fields before you begin (you may need to contact your organisation's IT support team for further details regarding its Microsoft Exchange Server).

 

Text field Name

Description

 E-mail address

 Your 'Exchange account' e-mail address

 Password

 Your 'Exchange account' password

 Domain/User Name

 The Domain is part of the information you might use to log onto your pc system.

E.g. if you log on as companydomainname/peter1, then type companydomainname for the domain name.

The user name is taken from the first part of your e-mail address.

 Exchange Server

 This will be your Exchange Server's external web address.

For example: owa.company.com

 Secure Connnection (SSL)

 Tick the box to enable this function.

SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is the security protocol that manage the security of a message transmission.

 Client certificate

 Tick the box to enable.

The Client certificate where required, is used in addition to your password for authentication purposes.

 

 

2. If you have previously tried to create an Exchange account on your handset, and have since failed in the attempt, then you will need to delete that account before proceeding with the steps within this guide.

 

To delete an account from the Home screen touch Apps > Settings > Accounts and sync. Touch the account that you wish to remove. Finally touch the Remove Account icon.

 

A stable data connection is required throughout the account setup process. If you are currently located in an area of poor coverage for your network operator then we advise you to connect your handset to a Wi-Fi network instead. 

 

4. From the Home screen touch Apps.

Domain/User Name

The Domain is part of the information you might use to log on to your pc.

Verify that the User name is correct.

NOTE: The Galaxy S3 may enter the User Name part of this entry based on the e-mail address entered in a previous step.

For example if your work e-mail account is on Microsoft Exchange Server and your e-mail address is samsunghtd@samsungtest.com,

then you would enter 'samsunghtd' for the user name

In some devices there are two

separate fields for this information:

Domain & Username.

NOTE: The Galaxy  

 S3 handset is using a format where both

 pieces of information are entered in

 the same "field" and separated by a "\“.

Exchange Server

This is your Exchange Server's

Tap in the Exchange Server box and enter the Exchange

 server address. This is the web address that you use to

 access your email using a web browser with Outlook Web

 Access (OWA). If your OWA address is "https://peters.logistics.com/owa", the Server address

should be "peters.logistics.com".

If you don't know the

address or are unsure, please contact your organisation's IT system administrator, for further assistance.

 

Use secure connection (SSL)

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the security protocol that manages the security of a message transmission.

Verify that the Server (SSL) connection setting is correct.

 (The check-box for the setting should be ticked, or not ticked, as appropriate). Ask your IT/IS admin support for further assistance.

 

Use Client certificate

 is used in addition to your password for authentication purposes

If not installed on the device already please ask your IT/IS admin support for details on obtaining your Client

Certificate if required (The check-box for the setting should be
