Information Services uses the ActiveSync protocol so that DePaul employees may access their DePaul email and calendar on their smartphones and other mobile devices. To better protect DePaul data, Information Services requires that all devices receiving DePaul email are encrypted and have a complex PIN or Password.
Outlook is an organization tool within Office 365. A popular email client, Outlook also includes a calendar, task manager, contact manager, and notes. It is the preferred email client for use with DePaul's student, faculty, and staff email accounts.
Outlook on the Web (or the Outlook web app) provides all employees with an online method for accessing their email when away from their office computers. It offers many of the same functions as the Outlook desktop clients for Windows and Mac OS X. It is compatible with most major browsers for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
If you need assistance setting up your phone to receive your DePaul employee email, please contact the Help Desk at 312-362-8765 or visit the Genius Squad.
