Syncing iPhone with Work Outlook Email

Requested by some readers, here is

How to Sync Work Outlook Email to iPhone

The possibility to Sync iPhone with a work Outlook account depends if ActiveSync is active on your company Exchange server or not

Therefore, ask your IT admin if your company has Exchange ActiveSync installed and set up on their server to push Outlook Contacts, Calendar, Events, Emails and Notes to iPhone

If this is the case, ActiveSync should be working and you just need to set up your iPhone with Exchange as follows:

  • On your iPhone, tap Settings
  • Go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Add Account -> Microsoft Exchange
 

Notes and possible issues

There is unfortunately no solution so far to Sync iPhone with an Outlook professional inbox other than the "push" method described above
