Windows Phone 7 : Setting Up E-Mail and Your Calendar

11/25/2010 11:15:37 AM
After tapping around and exploring your new phone a bit, you’re probably eager to start actually doing stuff. Top of the list for most folks is setting up their e-mail, calendar, and contacts list. If you use one of the popular web-based services from Microsoft, Google, or Yahoo, adding it to your phone is a breeze: Just type your sign-in credentials, and Windows Phone does the rest. Ditto for your work accounts. If your company uses Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or later (and many do), Windows Phone can do most of the account set up on your behalf.

1. Set Up Your Accounts

  1. On the Start screen, flick left to the Apps list or tap the arrow.

  2. Tap Settings.

  3. Tap Email & Accounts.

  4. Tap Add An Account.

  5. Do one of the following:

    • To set up a Yahoo, Windows Live, or Google account, tap its name.

    • To set up a Microsoft Exchange account for your work e-mail or calendar, tap Outlook.

    • To set up an ISP account that isn’t listed (for example, AT&T, Comcast, or EarthLink), tap Other Account.

  6. Enter your e-mail address and password by tapping the appropriate box.

  7. When you’re done, tap Sign In. Windows Phone attempts to find your account information and download any e-mail, contacts, and calendar entries.


Tip:

If you’re setting up multiple accounts from the same provider—for example, two Gmail mailboxes—you can give each a unique name. Tap Settings > Email & Accounts. Tap the account, and then tap Account Name and type a new name.



Tip:

When you use your phone for the first time, you’ll see a tile on the Start screen called Email Setup. Tapping it takes you straight to account setup.
