View Resource Accounts in Outlook for Android

We recommend that you use Microsoft's Outlook App for Android or Win Mobile rather than the native app. See Microsoft's Outlook App for Android Mobile support page or Microsoft's Win Mobile App support page for download and setup instructions. In addition to the steps listed there, you will also see Cornell's NetID login screen.
We strongly recommend that, when it comes to your calendar, you only use your mobile device for viewing, not accepting or declining meetings. 

Use Outlook on your computer or Outlook on the web to accept or decline meetings.

  1. Open Outlook and tap the menu icon.
  2. Tap the settings icon.
  3. Under Accounts, tap Add Account.

    For example,

  7. On the Account Type page, tap IMAP.

    Email address: the address for the Resource Account (the same thing you entered in step 5 above)

    Under IMAP Incoming Mail Server,

    IMAP Username: YOUR email address, then a slash, then the name of the Resource account (which is the part of the email address before the "@" symbol).
