View Resource Accounts in Outlook for iOS

We recommend that you use Microsoft's Outlook App for iOS rather than iOS's native app. See Microsoft's Outlook App for iOS Mobile 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.

Add a Resource Account Mailbox

  1. Open Outlook and tap the menu icon.
  2. Tap the settings icon.
  3. Under Accounts, tap Add Account.
  4. Tap Add Email Account.
  5. Enter the email address of the Resource Account and tap Add Account.
    For example,
  6. On the CUWeblogin page that opens, tap Not Office 365 in the top right corner, then tap Change Account Provider in the menu that appears.
  7. Tap IMAP.
  8. Tap Use Advanced Settings then enter the following:
    Email address: the address for the Resource Account (the same thing you entered in step 5 above)
    Display Name: the name of the Resource Account (the text label you want to see in your Outlook app)

    Under IMAP Incoming Mail Server,
    IMAP Host Name:
    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).
    For example,
    IMAP Password: Enter YOUR NetID password.

    Under SMTP Outgoing Mail Server
    SMTP Hostname:
    SMTP Username: Enter YOUR email address.
