While it is possible to connect other email clients to you CDU email account. We have found that the client that works best and is the easiest to install is the Microsoft Outlook App. For these reasons this is the app we recommend and provide instructions for.

Install the iOS Outlook App

First of all you need to get the Outlook App from the iTunes store.

After it has been installed.

Open the application and configure it to access your email account.

  • Select "Exchange"
  • Type in your email address eg. s123456@students.cdu.edu.au or for staff your regular email address.
  • Enter your password.
  • Give the account a meaningful name.

Your email will then be available to you on your iPhone or Tablet
