[NOTE: The MAIL app that appears in programs offers to configure POP or IMAP but does not
offer Exchange. We recommend you use the “Work Email” app instead of “Mail” app. Although
you can choose to use IMAP, Exchange mode included with “Work Email” syncs messages as they
arrive, integrates with the campus e-mail and phone directory, syncs your contacts, additional
folders, calendars and tasks, to your phone where IMAP doesn’t]
