Maximizing Email Performance on Mobile

For best performance, it is recommended that you download and configure the Outlook app for your mobile device. Although the Mail app on your mobile device is fine for those who check email on their phone occasionally, the Outlook app is a robust solution for those who rely on email. Some added features of the mobile app include management of shared mailboxes, categorization of messages, ability to create inbox rules and the ability to view colleagues’ calendars, just as you can on desktop.

To download the Outlook app, go to the Apple Store or Google Play and search Microsoft Outlook.
