NOTE: A mail account can become very large, it is not unusual for someone to have 4GB of data or more (roughly the equivalent of a DVD's worth of data). By default, your iOS device will only synchronize several days worth of information, this is done to conserve memory on your device and avoid expensive cell fees.
iOS devices, including the Apple iPad and iPhone, can connect to the department's mail, calendar, and contact server. In the following example, an EOAS researcher Dr. John Smith has the user account "jsmith".
- On your device tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account > Exchange.
- Enter your information into the fields. For email enter "email@example.com", click Next.
- In the majority of cases, you are done. In some rare situations, you may need to enter additional information.
Description: Anything You Like
The last screen will ask you what content you would like to sync:
- Mail includes all of the email in your inbox and sub-folders.
- Contacts would gather all of contacts you currently have stored on the EOAS server.
- Calendars would include one or more of the servers stored on the EOAS system.
- Reminders are short notes with dates attached that can be set with an alarm to notify you when a certain time is reached.
- Notes are brief entries, maybe a shopping list or ongoing record of topics you want to cosnider as your next thesis.
Click Save to finish the process and your iOS device will begin to pull data from the server.
