To configure your iPhone or iPad, please follow the instructions available at Google Support.  Please note that you access Google by using the "Microsoft Exchange" server type on your phone. If you use the "Google" option, you may not have access to the global contact list for the Drew domain, and email will only show up on your device periodically instead of as soon as it is received.  Please also note that, although Google has disabled Exchange support for gmail.com accounts, it remains available for Google Apps accounts.

    Adding your Drew account as a Google account

    Although the University recommends using the Exchange account type for the reasons listed above, we realize some people prefer to add their account as a Google account. For those individuals, we provide these instructions. Support for this type of set up may be limitedSome people may notice that they won't have access to Drew's global contact list in older versions of iOS (this means you will see auto-fill work for people you have emailed in the past, but possibly not for Drewids you've never emailed before).

    Warning
    Please note: Some people prefer to use the Gmail app. We have seen recently that some people are unable to add their Drew account directly in the Gmail app. However, following the steps below to add your Google account in Settings on your device will work. You can then choose to use the native Mail app, or you can return to the Gmail app and add your Drew account successfully.
