This post exclusively covers setting up your mobile device to sync your college mail. For information on other Office mobile apps, please see our Microsoft Office Mobile Apps post.
We recommend using your device’s native Exchange sync (see below). You can also try the OWA (Outlook Web App), which you can access either from your device’s app store (available free and named OWA) or in your device’s web browser (go to https://webmail.brynmawr.edu). The OWA mobile app can be set up to notify you about calendar entries and new mail.
If you like, you can use both, and you may find it helpful to do so given that the OWA, unlike the native sync, allows access to your shared mail folders and calendars.
We do not recommend using the Outlook app (which is different from the OWA) for your mobile device. It does not support certain key features, such as shared folders and calendars, that are present in the OWA and otherwise does not improve the experience.
