Use the settings below to set up your @live.kutztown.edu account on your mobile device or to set up your personal email account to retrieve messages from your @live.kutztown.edu account. Scroll down for step-by-step instructions for specific devices.

 

USER INFORMATION: 

Username: Your FULL email address (abcde123@live.kutztown.edu) 

Password: Your @live.kutztown.edu password 

 

SERVER INFORMATION: 

Incoming Mail Server: pod51000.outlook.com 

Incoming Mail Server Port: 143 (for IMAP) (*Do not use POP)

Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): pod51000.outlook.com 

Outgoing Mail Server Port: 587 

 

SECURITY: 

Both should be set for TLS, but if TLS is not available then choose SSL for both. 

NOTE: SSL should change the Incoming Mail Server Port to 993. If it does not do this automatically, you must do so manually.

 


On an iPhone, the steps go this way (Note: See Links & Files, below, for an alternative how-to document):

  • Open Settings
  • Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars
  • Tap Add Account
  • Tap Microsoft Exchange
  • Enter your email address in the form abcde123@live.kutztown.edu<mailto:abcde123@live.kutztown.edu> and password
  • Tap Next
  • Enter pod51000.outlook.com for the server; enter your username in the form abcde123@live.kutztown.edu<mailto:abcde123@live.kutztown.edu> -- your password should be there, but if not type it in
  • Tap Next
  • Select the options you want to sync
  • Tap Save
  • Close Settings

On Android, it's like this:

    • Open Settings
    • Tap Accounts & sync (under PERSONAL)
    • Tap ADD ACCOUNT
    • Tap Corporate
    • Enter your 'Email address' in the form abcde123@live.kutztown.edu and your 'Password.' Tap Next
    • Now add STUDENTS/ before your username, and @live.kutztown.edu after; it will have the form, STUDENTS/abcde123@live.kutztown.edu  Change the prefilled 'Server' field below that from 'live.kutztown.edu' to pod51000.outlook.com and tap Next
    • Click 'OK' through the security notice to continue

Android will show you a menu of options for configuring your account; choose the ones you like.
