Microsoft Exchange Email Setup

 

The Microsoft Exchange setup procedure described below is the preferred setup method for your Shaw.ca email address. Exchange offers advanced mail handling, less confusion for accounts connected to multiple devices, and synchronization with calendars and contacts. Any emails sent from this device will appear on Webmail and any emails deleted from the device will also be deleted from Webmail and the server.

 

To configure your phone/tablet to send and receive emails using an Exchange Server:

 

 

  1. Ensure that your Shaw.ca email account password meets the minimum security requirements
  2. Select the APPS button on your Optimus G
  3. Select Email
  4. Tap Microsoft Exchange
  5. Enter your Shaw email address and password
  6. Enter your username, which is your Shaw email address without @shaw.ca
  7. Select Next
  8. Enter the following:
      • Server Address: wm.shaw.ca
      • Domain: shaw.ca
      • Use SSL: Yes (add a check mark)
      • Accept all SSL Certificates: Yes (add a check mark)
  9. Choose Next
  10. Choose which services you would like to sync (Mail, Contacts and Calendar)
  11. Select Next
  12. Tap Activate
  13. Enter an account name and select Done to finish setup
