Different phones require different methods to sync your Oglethorpe Email account. Here are a few different methods for syncing up your email to your smart phone. You can always bring your device to the helpdesk and we’ll be happy to help you set it up!

Begin set up by choosing:

Android: Settings > Accounts & Sync > Add Account
OR choose the email app icon and select “Add account”.
Enter your log-in details (same as if you were logging into OU Email on a computer), and then press next.

iPhone: Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars  > Add Account
Enter your log-in details (same as if you were logging into OU Email on a computer), and then press next.
