How do I add my MIIS email account to my iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch?

For the best results, we recommend that you update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch to the latest iOS. At this time, the latest is iOS 8. For more information on updating your Apple products, please refer to its support article.

Following the steps below will help you set up your MIIS email on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. We have included screenshots from setup on an iPad, but the process is the same for the other two devices.

1. Go to the “Settings” menu.

8. Hit “Next,” and you will have the option of selecting which items you would like to sync to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. Select as many as you would like. **Unless you keep an up-to-date list of contacts in Outlook, you should not synchronize contacts because your existing contacts on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch will be deleted. The same goes for your calendar. If you use your device’s calendar to organize your schedule, you should not synchronize your calendar.
