At IU, how do I configure my BlackBerry PlayBook for Exchange ActiveSync?

Note:
Students who are admitted but not yet enrolled can only open web pages on the IU Secure network. Other Internet services, e.g., email or chat clients, gaming services, etc., will not work until you have enrolled status.

To configure your PlayBook for ActiveSync, the device OS version must be at least 2.0.

At Indiana University, to set up Exchange ActiveSync on your BlackBerry PlayBook, from the home screen:

  1. Tap Messages > Add Account > Email, Calendar and Contacts.
  2. Tap Advanced Set up.
  3. Tap Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.
  4. Enter information in the following fields:
    • Description: Whatever you want to name the account
    • Domain: ADS
    • User name: Your IU username
    • Password: Your IU passphrase
    • Server address: mail.iu.edu
  5. Tap Continue. Your device's email should automatically be populated.
Note:
IU allows Exchange partnerships with up to 10 mobile devices. If you experience issues setting up an Exchange account on your mobile device, you may want to verify how many devices you have partnered with Exchange; see In Outlook Web App, how can I manage my Exchange ActiveSync device?
