Setting up your BISD email to Android devices

How to connect your BISD email to an Android device

 Please follow these instructions to connect your Birdville email with an Android device.  *Please note that pictures below may vary from the way your phone looks.

 

Step 1: Make sure to select “Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync” account.

 

Step 2:  - In the first field, you are asked for your Birdville email address.

             - In the second field, enter your regular network password. This is the same as webmail/logging into a computer.

- Then click ‘Manual setup.’

 

 

Step 3:   -    When asked for 'DOMAIN\Username' - enter your regular BISD network login name. This is the same username used for webmail/computer login. If that does not work, try entering bisd\username.

-          Your 'PASSWORD' should already be prefilled from earlier entry - leave it alone on this step.

-          The Exchange server is always mobile.birdvilleschools.net.

-          'USE SECURE CONNECTION (SSL)' should ALWAYS be checked, the other options should remain unchecked.

-          Click Next 

 

 

Step 4: Click [OK] on the next screen with a ‘Remote Security Administration’ alert box. This box means you can control your device from your webmail account and also enables certain other security features for safety.

 

Final Step:   You can adjust certain account options from this screen.

 

-          The most important is ‘PERIOD TO SYNC EMAIL’: How many days of e-mail your device will retrieve. This setting applies to ALL of your mail folders on the server, even sub-folders. Most people set this to 'TWO WEEKS' - but you can adjust based on your needs.

-          You can also choose to sync your calendar and contacts. However, if you want to keep your personal calendars and contacts separate from your BISD items, leave those boxes unchecked.
