Our email hosting in the Cloud within Office 365 from Microsoft. And unfortunately my Nexus 7 tablet can’t detect Microsoft exchange server when I try to setup my email account. I never have any problems with iPhone or Outlook so I was puzzled why it does not work for me.
I goggled about the issue, but did not found the solution, although it was a lot of questions how to do it. After some research I found how to setup Microsoft exchange account on Google Nexus 7 tablet.
Setting up Exchange email account on Google Nexus 7 tablet
After that you will be navigated to a Server settings window, with default setting for your exchange server. But the default settings are incorrect, so you have to provide correct settings there.
|Domain\Username||full email address with name and email@example.com|
|Password||yours account password|
|Server||Outlook server name (read below where you can find it)||abcProd00111.outlook.com|
|Use secure connection (SSL)||default value||check to use it|
|Accept all SSL certificates||default value||unchecked|
|Client certificate||default value||none|
The Exchange server name is the same as you see when you use webmail. For example in case of Microsoft Office 365 you type in your browser address “portal.microsoftonline.com” and after you provide your username and password it redirect you to address similar to “abcprd01234.outlook.com” In case if your company has it’s own dedicated Exchange server, the address can be similar to “owa.yourdomain.com”, but if you don’t know it, please ask your administrator.
