How to Sync Samsung Galaxy Note with Exchange


Again another How To using Android on my newly acquired Samsung Galaxy Note, just because I love this phone so much!

How to sync Android with Exchange:

Open the settings menu and select “Accounts and Sync:


On the next screen select Add Account:


Next Select “Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync”:


Next Enter your Exchange email address and Password after you are done select Next in the bottom right:


Next you will see a status bar, unless you’ve typed a bad password:


Next you are going to see a warning about the fact that the Exchange Server now owns all kinds of security control over the phone.  This is normal, the long and short, the Exchange Admin now has the ability to remote wipe your device.  This is pretty standard especially for business that worry about security.  So just click ok.


Next you have the option to adjust settings on account behavior.  Things like How many days of email to keep on the phone “Period to sync email” or how many days to sync the Calendar “Period to sync Calendar”.  You also have the options to disable syncing contacts, calendar etc.  Marked in Green below.  You also have the option to send all email from this account which you may or may not want to do.  It all depends on if you have other email accounts setup on the phone (think gmail) and where you want most of your email to come from ie, gmail or exchange.  Make your choice and mark or don’t mark the item with the yellow arrow.  Then click Next.


Next you can give the account a name, this is simply a label you will use on your phone to recognize the account. The name of the business or school etc is a good choice here.


Once you are done you should see a list of accounts, typically Gmail and then the Exchange Account.  If you want to get back to the account settings to change something, Open the account so you are looking at the list of current emails.

Select the options button
Select “More”
Select “Account Settings”

From here you can now set custom sounds, signatures, etc for this specific account.

Good Luck!
