Users can configure a variety of mobile phones with Microsoft Office 365 for professionals and small businesses to send and receive Microsoft Exchange Online email, and—if their mobile phones support it—access calendar and contacts information.
As an administrator, you can configure Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync to enable most smartphones to be able to access Exchange Online in Office 365. Among the mobile phones that can access Office 365 are Windows Phone, Apple iPhone, Android phones, and BlackBerry® devices. Before your users can set up email and other Microsoft Exchange Server services on their phones, you must configure Exchange Online to enable Exchange ActiveSync.
After you enable email for users’ mobile phones, you can manage some phone features or options remotely. For example, you can require passwords for your users’ mobile phones.
