Setting up student email on a computer or phone

You can set up certain programs (such as Outlook) or devices (such as a cell phone) to read your WSU email. Devices and programs are different, but they all need the same basic information to set up. You can set your email up using Microsoft Exchange. The settings are below:

Set up Office 365 email in the iOS Mail app:

 

  1. Go to Settings, then scroll down to Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and tap Add Account (this may now be listed as Mail, or Accounts & Passwords).
  2. Select Exchange.
  3. Enter your myWSU ID@wichita.edu in the email field – not your actual @shockers.wichita.edu email address.
  4. When asked to configure manually, or automatically choose manually.
  5. Enter your myWSU password, and a description of your account. Once your credentials have been entered, tap Next. Your email account is now ready for use with the iOS Mail app.

If you are unable to connect, add these settings:

Server: outlook.office365.com

Domain: ad.wichita.edu

Username: MUST be your myWSU ID@wichita.edu


Set up email with the built-in Android email app:

Note: Android mail apps may look different across different devices, and the directions given may not exactly match the options you see. Use these steps as a guide, or consult the manufacturer's help for your particular device. You can also choose to use the built-in Gmail app if your email app is not available.
1. Tap Settings, Accounts, Add account, Email.
2. Type your myWSUID@wichita.edu in email field (not your actual @shockers.wichita.edu email address), type your myWSU password, and then tap Next.
3. Select the Microsoft Exchange Active Sync option. This could also appear as Exchange, or Corporate (on older phones).
4. You might receive a message about additional security features. Select OK to continue.
5. Once the device verifies the server settings the Account Options page opens. Accept the defaults, or select the options for how you want to receive and send your mail. Tap Next. (You may need to scroll down to see Next.)
6. On the Set up email page you can change the name of your account. When you're finished tap Done.
