Setting up your FDU Email Account on Android OS

Due to multiple Android OS device manufacturers (Samsung, Google, or LG) each having their own native ‘Mail’ app, email setup and features are different depending on the manufacturer of the Android OS devices. For this reason, it is best practice to use the Microsoft ‘Outlook’ app found in the Google Play Store. Follow the instructions below to setup Outlook on Android OS.
