Setting up GSA email access on your iOS or Android device

This User Guide will help GSA students and staff to configure an iOS or Android device to allow access to GSA email via the Mail (iOS) or Email (Android) app, rather than by using webmail.

You can still access your email via the web, from any device, by visiting mail.office365.com.

For instructions for iOS devices, see below.
