Mobile Email Instructions

Whether you are at one of our Mid-State locations or logged in from a remote location, our aim is to make accessing your email account via a mobile device quick and easy. Below are step-by-step instructions on how to access your student email account on any mobile device, from anywhere. 

Mobile Email On Campus

If you are on campus when setting up your mailbox, your mobile device will most likely attempt to use our wireless connection as the #1 priority for data. In order to use our wireless connection you will need to open a browser and accept the terms before attempting to set up a connection for your email. Otherwise you will receive an "unable to connect" error message.
