    • Manufacturer Models.  For this reason, it is best practice to use the Microsoft  
    • “Outlook” app located in the Google Play Store. The app can be downloaded to your  
    • Android mobile device for free. The Microsoft “Outlook” app allows for universal setup and compatibility on all versions of Android mobile devices.
