Microsoft Exchange Email Setup

 

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. Open the APPS drawer on your Google Nexus 5
  3. Select the Email application
  4. If this is the first time you are setting up an email account, tap Manual Setup. Otherwise, tap the Menu button on your Nexus 5 phone, choose New Account and then select Manual Setup
  5. Select the account type Exchange
  6. Enter your Shaw email address and password
  7. 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)
  8. Choose Next
  9. Choose which services you would like to sync (Mail, Contacts and Calendar)
  10. Select Next
