Email on your phone or tablet

Reading your UvA mail on your phone or tablet

If you want to receive your UvA email on your smartphone or tablet, you can do so using the Microsoft Outlook app.

Setting up your email

Setting up your email in the Outlook app takes just a few simple steps:

  • Email on your Android phone
    1. Go to the Play Store and install the Intune Company Portal app. You don't have to do anything with this app, just install it and do NOT log in.
    2. Go to the Play Store and install the Microsoft Outlook app.
    3. Open the Outlook app on your phone or tablet.
    4. Choose a new account and select the e-mail provider Exchange
    5. Log in with your UvA email address and password.

Do you need help?

On the Microsoft website you will find all the information you need about setting up and using the Outlook app.

Would you rather use the standard email app?

Do you prefer to keep using the standard e-mail app on your phone or tablet? We advise you not to, because of security risks, but it is still possible. Follow the steps listed above to set up your e-mail for Android or iOS.

Emailing safely

In order to e-mail securely, it is important that the operating system and apps on your phone and tablet are up to date. So always install the latest updates. Do you work with personal data or confidential information? Then do not send this with your mobile device, but use your PC or laptop.
