Apple iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) Exchange Setup
Before you begin using Exchange for mobile devices you will first need to agree to NAU's Mobile Device policies at: https://iris.nau.edu/homepage/mobile/
All current Apple iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices have the built-in capability to communicate directly to NAU's Exchange email using the ActiveSync protocol. (Exchange tasks are not synced to these devices.) This document was built for the iPhone, however the process is identical on all three of these Apple devices.

Step 2Select “Mail, Contacts, Calendars.”

Step 6You may receive a certificate warning as shown here. Select “Accept.”
Step 7If the phone is unable to automatically detect settings, you will need to enter “iris.nau.edu” in the server field.
Step 8Select the categories you wish to synchronize with Exchange. By default, all options are on.
Step 9You will receive a prompt that you must configure a passcode for your device. This must be at least 4 characters and can be letters, numbers, or any combination thereof.
Passcode Lock ConfigurationThere is one additional setting that you may wish to configure. The passcode lock defaults to requiring the passcode as soon as the device enters standby. This setting can be changed to up to 15 minutes. To do so, follow these steps.
