Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Add all email accounts, part of Office for iPad and iPhone Essential Training (2014).
- [Voiceover] To get started, tap the Outlook icon. And then tap the blue Get Started button. You can swipe through and view some features of Outlook, and then tap Add an Account. Outlook supports many different types of email addresses. From Office 365 to Yahoo Mail to Gmail, to even a regular iMAP account, if you're adding your home internet service provider's email address. In this case, I'm going to tap Exchange.
From here, I'll put in my Exchange email address. If you chose any other service, such as Yahoo or Google for Gmail, you'll be walked through the account. You will need your email address and password ready. When you're all set, tap Go. And Outlook will begin to sync your data. Once it's synced, my email will automatically be visible on my iPad. I can add a new email address at any time by tapping Settings in the bottom right-hand side of the screen, and then tapping Add Account on the left-hand side.
It's going to bring me back to the same screen, and I can then add an additional email account. This time, I'll tap Google. I'm going to add my personal Gmail. I'll put in my email address and tap Next. And then I'll put in my password. Tap Sign In. And give Outlook permission to view everything from my Gmail account. I'll tap Allow in the bottom right-hand side. And now I can see that I have two email accounts that have been added.
Once again, I can tap Add Account if I want to add more, and I can tap on each account to view the settings or tap Delete Account to get rid of it entirely. I can also scroll down on the left-hand side and view the settings for each account. I can add a signature. I can choose my swipe options. I can decide whether or not I want to use Focused Inbox, and I'll show you that in the next video. I can also choose some calendar settings. For example, the Default view and when the week is going to start.
That will make more sense when we go over the calendar settings, but for now, to get back to your email, tap Mail in the bottom left-hand side of the screen.

Q: This course was updated on 11/07/2014. What changed?
A: We added new movies and updated existing ones to include the new Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps for iPhone as well as discuss Dropbox integration. While most of the course was filmed on an iPad, the apps work very similarly on both the iPad and iPhone. Also check out the Office for iPhone First Look course to explore which editing features are available to all users and which require an Office 365 subscription.
