Setup Outlook Live account in Android Phone


Here are the setup instructions which worked for me on HTC EVO. First try the auto configuration, if that does not work, use the following values to manually configure the account.

  • Email address: Your Outlook Live email address in the form [username@domain.com]
  • Server address: m.outlook.com
  • User name: Same as Email Address in the form [username@domain.com]
  • Password: Your Outlook Live password
  • Check the box "This server requires an encrypted SSL connection"
  • Domain: Leave it blank.

    I am unable to get my work email on my Droid.  I am leaving the domain blank, email address is correct.  Server address – m.outlook.com  —  i work at Coca-cola and have had the password reset so i should be able to do this.  Not sure what i am doing incorrectly.

    I am using Target Corporation's outlook and I am unable to setup Outlook in my HTC wildfire. I had given the same settings that Sanjeev has mentioned, but yet no luck though.

  9. Hi Kelly and Ash, can you try the Steve Goodman's post in the following thread about the iPhone instructions? Thanks

  13. Lauren says:

    I keep getting that too! It says my username and/or password is incorrect. WTF.

  14. Nat says:

    I get the same as Prash and Lauren, also with a unimail account 🙁

  15. Nat,

    If your OWA url is like xxxPRDxxxx.outlook.com/owa, try using the server address as xxxPRDxxxx.outlook.com instead of m.outlook.com.

  16. annmarie says:

  17. JPRJ says:

  29. Nora says:

  30. Matthew says:

    I have an htc evo 3D and was having the same issue. The settings on this site worked for me.

    http://www.everneededto.com/…/setup-outlook-email-account-on-android.html

    It will allow you to setup the email account without installing the hotmail email app. Good luck!!

  34. endless says:

    Bummer but this didn't work for my galaxy s3 either. I tried doing it the first few times following the instructions exactly. When that didn't work I tried every variation i could think of.

    Then I tried the link Matthew supplied. No luck there either.

    Anybody get your outlook working within android with a samsung galaxy s3?

  35. Nishi says:

    I was using my office email in my HTC Explorer. It was working fine. All of sudden it stopped syncing. Then  removed the account thinking of adding again. But since then i am not able to add..It always throws error like..Authentication Failed..Check your name/Password. I implemented the same settings as i was using before including the domain name also. I am stucked……. my office mail id is @mahindrasatyam.com
