If this is the first time you've set up your iOS device, you'll receive the following message:

Your device is temporarily blocked from synchronizing using Exchange ActiveSync until your administrator grants it access.

Our IT department has also received this notification and will approve your device within one business day. Please contact us if you do not begin receiving your mail after that time.



Syncing contacts from Outlook to the iPhone

Adding contacts to your phone will not sync with Outlook on your desktop, but contacts added in desktop Outlook will sync to your mobile device, if you have turned on the feature to save contacts.

To get to this location, navigate to Outlook App  Account (your picture in the top left corner) > Settings (gear icon) > tap your account. Scroll down until you find Save Contacts. Toggle the feature off if you would not like your Outlook contacts to be synced to your phone contacts.
