An Office 365 connection is recommended for accessing your email, as it allows you to use most of the features set up in your Outlook Account. Here are the basic steps for setting up a WPI email account on Apple iPhones, iPod Touches, and iPads:

  1. Select "Settings"
  2. Scroll to and select "Passwords & Accounts"
  3. Select "Add Account"
  4. Select the "Microsoft Exchange" option
  5. Enter the following and click "Next":
    • Email: username@wpi.edu
    • Description: Exchange (which it defaults to)
  6. On the prompt, choose "Sign In"
  7. Enter your WPI Password and select "Done"
  8. Choose the applications you'd like to sync to your device and click "Save"

WPI allows community members to access WPI email from mobile devices.

Please note: WPI provides the ability to remotely wipe all data from a connected mobile device in the event it is stolen, lost, or compromised. A remote wipe can be executed by the WPI account owner or requested through the Service Desk.

Backup of personal data on any mobile device is the responsibility of the device holder.
