Please follow the steps below to add your staff (Exchange) email in to your iPhone, iPod and/or iPad. The iOS is standard across all Apple mobile devices. 

1.) From the main screen on your iPhone, select the 'Settings' application (your application location could be in a different location).

5.)Fill out the following fields and then click 'Next'

  • Email - This would be your address
  • Domain - staff
  • Username - This is your Purdue Career Account username
  • Password - This is your Purdue Career Account password
  • Description - You can type whatever you want in this field. It's simply a way to let you know which account you are viewing on the iPhone.

6.) You will now see another field to enter the 'Server' since the certificate couldn't be verified. Press the 'Server' field and enter '' and press 'Next'.

7.) Assuming you want to synchronize your mail, contacts and calendar from Exchange to your iPhone, leave these three options to 'ON' and press 'Done'. You can turn these options off at any time by returning to the settings for this account. 

You have now completed configuring your iPhone to the Exchange server. You can now exit out of these screens and go to the 'Mail', 'Calendar', or 'Contacts' applications on your device to view the information on the Exchange server to verify it works.


Note: Whenever you change your University password remember to go into your account settings and update it or your account may get locked out.
