  1. Ensure that your Shaw.ca email account password meets the minimum security requirements
  2. Select the APPS button on your Xperia Play phone
  3. Choose Mail
  4. Enter your full Shaw email address and password
  5. Choose Manual Setup
  6. Tap Exchange ActiveSync

      • Accept all SSL certificates: Yes (add a check mark)
