    To get started with, press the circular button at the bottom of your phone one time.
    This will open up your lock screen. Alternatively, you can also press the lock screen button which is located on the right side of the phone.

    You are going to be looking for the Outlook icon, which we currently have on our Home screen.
    It is a blue icon with a white sheet of paper that reads "O" and an envelope behind it. Give it a single press and it will open up Outlook.

    You will now see on the main Outlook page that Outlook is listed with the same blue icon, as opposed to a white one, and it indicates that "mobile email just got a promotion!" It shows an envelope, a calendar, documents and people.
    What you are going to do is go to the very bottom and press on the blue rectangle which reads Add an Account - give that a single press.

    This is going to open up a selection where you have 6 options to choose from.
    The one that we are going to be using now is the "Microsoft Exchange" account which is the blue box with "E" and the Microsoft floral design on the back. It also says, "Exchange". We are going to press that icon and launch it. If you would like to add other accounts like Gmail, IMAP, iCloud, Yahoo Mail, and Outlook.com, we also have corresponding tutorials for those and we will help you get those started and set up as well.

  7. 7
    Once we've pressed Exchange, it's going to give us the option to setup an account.
    We are going to enter in an actual email, password and the description for the account. Alternatively, we can also enter additional options for the account. If we choose to enter these details now, then we will not be taken to a secondary window later. However, as power users already know about this, we are not going to add more details and start simple.

  8. 8
    As you can see, we have entered in an email address, a password, and a description which, in this case, is "Exchange".
    If you have multiple Exchange accounts, then obviously you do not want to call them all "Exchange". You would like to call them something else such as "Mail 1", or "Personal", or "Work". We are going to tap on "OK" which is going to take us to the next window. Tapping on "OK" will confirm our settings.

    Now, we are on the advanced section of the "Setup Account" - the second part.
    We are going to enter in a server, an optional domain and a username. The server, in all cases, will be "Outlook.office365.com" - let's type that in.

  10. 10
    Once we have typed in the server, we are now going down to the username - which will be the same as our email.
    Once you have entered in your username, your password should already be there from your earlier entry in the system. Now, you want to go back to the top and tap on "OK" once more.

  11. 11
    As you can see now, the account has been successfully added.
    Now we are given the option for Outlook to send us notifications which include alerts, sounds, icon badges and all sorts of fun and exciting stuff. Let's go ahead and press OK for that because we do want to be notified of our email especially if it's a business account.

    The difference of this app over your Outlook Desktop version is that your inbox is more focused - as they are saying here.
    Let's just crammed up focus for you for a bit. As you can see here, we've got a focus on emails. We have "Press Tour", "Industry Growth" message, "Roadmap", and others- these are all filters. You can set this filters up yourself. Then you have your "Other" tab where everything not filtered goes. Let's swipe over to show what we are talking about.

  13. 13
    We can set up schedules.
    Say, it's a Monday morning and we get a notification about our meeting on Thursday. We do not need that notification today. Thursday is four days away. What we are going to do is swipe over and schedule that message to come back to us by Thursday morning. That way, we don't have to worry about it. We don't have to add it to a calendar. We are not going to do anything else with it. It's going to come back automatically.

    Next, you can send times to people for places and meetings to say "Listen, I'm here.
    I'm available / I'm not available."

    Lastly, you can easily attach files - DropBox, Google Drive, One Drive or even from your system especially if you are one of the folks who have a secondary Drive application installed.

    What we are going to do here is we can go ahead and go to our Inbox.
    We can do that by pressing "GO TO INBOX" button or we can press the little "X" icon on the upper-right part of the screen. Give that a tap.

    Now, we are on the Microsoft Outlook app for the iPhone 6.
    You have full access to it. You can do any of your email task which you normally do. We do have a tutorial on how to use each of these functions and we will explain that on a later video. For now, what we are going to do is conclude this tutorial as this was only about getting you setup and into your actual account.
