For the business owners iPad 3 takes efficiency, mobility and style to the next level. Thanks to the Activesync feature, setting up and using hosted exchange on your sleek and sexy tablet is pretty simple. To make life easier, we have created a step-by-step guide on the process.
Before setting up, make sure you have access to your hosted exchange mailbox, and you know its version.
Note: if you don’t have any mail accounts configured on your iPad yet, tap the Mail icon on home screen and go to step 4.
Step 1. Tap the Settings icon on your home screen.
Step 2. When the Settings open up, tap Mail, Contact, Calendars on the left hand side of the screen.
Step 3. Tap Add Account.
Step 4. Names of several service providers including Yahoo, Gmail, AOL, will appear. Tap Microsoft Exchange, usually the first option.
Step 5. Enter your email address into the Email field, leave the Domain field empty, and enter your email account password in the Password field.
Step 6. Tap Next and wait for the device to auto-configure your account.
Step 7. When prompted for Server, Enter the following based on your version:
MS Exchange 2010: mail.ex2.secureserver.net or mail.ex3.secureserver.net
MS Exchange 2007: mail.ex1.secureserver.net
Then tap Next.
Step 8. Tap Done and the iPad will immediately start synchronizing your email, contact and calendar items.
If you don’t wish to synchronize any of these items, simply turn it off under your exchange account menu.
Once configured, using hosted exchange on the large touch screen, powered with the cutting-edge Retina Display, is a breeze. Not only you can send/receive emails with a few taps, but also access and update your calendar and contact list. Adding new appointments or inviting attendees, especially when you’re on the go, has never been easier. The permanently synchronized contact list ensures you don’t have to draw up multiple lists.
