    Have you setup the Office365 email on the phone? Have you setup the connect to one drive app on the phone to access your files? This will give you the email, tasks, contacts and calendar on the phone, plus access to your files stored online in Office365.

    If you are asking about the Office365 apps, I am not sure if the Android versions work and using the web interface is a bit awkward and slow.

    The Android Office apps do work, but they are nowhere near as complete as the desktop apps. You can enter text and data and do some formatting, but graphics management is poor, and you can't save files as pdf. You also can't embed a spreadsheet in a Word document. So they work, and they offer OneDrive integration, but don't expect to create anything spectacular.

    Hi guys

    Note sure how to set up 365 email on phone, have gone into settings, accounts etc. but no joy, one drive app, what is this?

    Everything plumbed in ok with outlook on mac so my emails are going into outlook ok. If I send an email from phone the outlook on mac picks it up however when I send an email from mac/outlook the phone doesn't pick it up, also calendars doesn't sync either.

    Thanks in advance

    There is an Office app which works but its crap and then there are separate Word, Excell, PowerPoint apps which will not work cause they are developed to work only on certain devices due to memory concerns. Maybe just maybe you can patch it if you know what you are doing, I don't.

    But anyhow I think people should get used to visit mobile sites that act as apps as well. Just go to Office.com and you will be redirected to nice mobile Office experience that's not different than the app itself (at least Office app).

    Go to accounts in the settings on your phone and enter your email and password for Office 365. It will sync calendar, contacts, email, tasks and notes. There is no need to use separate apps. It works with all the native BlackBerry apps.

    If you use an alias email with Office 365 (i.e. It's not @outlook.com), you may need to go into Advanced Settings to set up your email.

    By office 365 do you mean like word, Excel, ppt, Onedrive? If so you can get it through Snap and downloading "office mobile" and "onedrive" by Microsoft

    After the username, email address and password fields, this is what my advanced account setup looks like. Check the server address, you may have to enter it manually.


    How do I get Office 365 on my BlackBerry Passport?-img_20150910_074727.png

    You can also try entering

    m.outlook.com

    as the server address.

    Hi nyplaya610

    Yes i have the office 365 with all above but can't get the outlook to sync with phone.

    Can send a message from my phone and outlook will pick it up but not the other way round. Is snap the way to go ?

    Tommy, did you delete your non-functioning account before changing it? You need to start fresh, so try the following steps.

    1. Delete the email account and reboot the phone.
    2. Go to Settings > Accounts > Add new > Email, Contacts, Calendar
    3. BEFORE YOU ENTER THE EMAIL ADDRESS, tap the slider bars icon at the bottom centre of the screen - this will take you to the specific email providers setup page.
    4. Select Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync or Outlook.com, whichever is appropriate for your situation.
    5. Proceed to set up the account, entering the server address if necessary.
    6. If it doesn't work, delete the account and reboot the phone before making changes.

    Good luck, hope this finally works for you. Please rest assured that it is possible to have an Outlook.com email account sync perfectly with a BB10 phone. I get emails on my Passport before the Mail app on my Surface 3.

    I use Office 365 with BB10 and it works great. I sync email, calendar, contacts, and tasks and notes in Remember. All using native BB...no other Apps required.

    There are no tricks to setting it up, so long as your Office 365 administrator hasnít set up anything odd.

    If you're still stuck after trying again post an update and I'll log in to Office 365 as an Admin and check settings and documentation for you.

    This should NOT be hard at all!

    Hi bb10adopter111

    Thanks for the help, may of found a way round, was mulling over a cup of tea last night and had the idea to open another email account using outlook.com, plumbed it in this morning and bingo outlook on mac syncs with blackberry passport phone and vice versa, just need to set up calendar etc.

    My original email account is an old pop account from many many years ago so maybe its dated or something so as they say 'out with the old and in with the new'

    If your old email does not support Microsoft Exchange active Sync, that was the problem.

    So the OP was trying to set up a POP provider as an EAS email. It sounds as if all your 365 subscription gives you is the Office applications, not Exchange hosting or other features. Everyone was leading you down the wrong path because we didn't have all of the information: in your original case before the new Outlook email, we thought you were trying to set up an email that was through Office 365, not a pre-existing one.

    Glad it's sorted, and it's probably best to retire the old POP account, it's the most basic of email services, and offers none of the features most people expect from their email in 2015.

    Hi rthonpm robsteve

    Sorry I probably didn't explain myself properly in the beginning. All has ended well thanks even though the outlook email address is a free one it is 100 times better than my old orange email account so yes email 2015 has come of age for me.

    Thanks to all
