A reminder that Microsoft Outlook is the recommended and supported email client for Android at Dartmouth. Also remember that you can always access your Dartmouth email and calendar by using from any supported web browser. If you have been notified that you have an Android device using Basic authentication we recommend you install Microsoft Outlook from the Google Play Store to ensure you are using a supported email client that is compatible with Modern Authentication.

Most new students are provisioned in Dartmouth Gmail.  

Android devices can be set up to send and receive mail with the Blitz email system. Although setting up these devices starts in the same way, the order of steps, terminology can vary from device to device. These instructions are not a full step by step guide. Please consult your device's manual for specific instructions.
