Microsoft Exchange® Email is a server-based email system that uses the Microsoft Outlook® desktop application as the primary user client. In addition to reading and managing Email, Outlook serves as a comprehensive personal information manager (PIM) that provides:

  • Calendar - appointments, meetings, and events; including calendar sharing and assigning assistant management.

  • Personal and Global Address books (Contacts) that can store multiple personal email addresses and telephone numbers, important dates and notes per entry.

  • Multi-level email storage (Folders) for easy message management.

  • Task management, including the ability to assign and track tasks to others.

  • Notes creation and management.

  • RSS (Rich Site Summary) subscription

  • Comprehensive search

  • Archiving and retention (automatic and user defined rules)

  • Global categories assignment

  • Multiple, user-defined views of email and data

  • Activity Journaling for the Microsoft Office suite of applications.

  • Access via most browsers using Office Web App® (OWA)

The following documentation and additional resources provide specific instructions for using Exchange Email. See the Exchange Email FAQs for more information. 

 Configuring devices for access to NJCU Exchange Email
These instructions work for both tablets and phones.

  • Configure Android Tablets
    These instructions use a Galaxy 10.1 tablet as the target device but the process is the same for all Android tablets and phones using the free basic application provided or downloaded from the Application Store. Implementation of the interface may differ per device. There are also commercial applications available that provide a better user experience and service implementation.

  • Configure Android Phones
    These are generic instructions from the Microsoft Technet Knowledgebase that can be used to set up any Android phone. Most smart phone manufacturers have implemented some form of Exchange connectivity that uses Microsoft's ActiveSync® interface, but these implementations differ somewhat in how they work. There are commercial replacements, such as TouchDown and Exchange Pro, that integrate more Exchange features than the basic applications provided for free.

  • Configure Apple devices
    These instructions use an iPhone 4 as an example but the process is the same for all iOS devices.

  • Configure Blackberry devices

SPAM FILTERING

The University provides email spam* and virus checking for faculty and staff through a system appliance that works with Exchange to filter out potentially dangerous emails. However, some dangerous email will still get through the filters and it is up to the user to understand and be able to identify the occasional bad email that gets through. Further, the appliance does not remove what might be considered "junk mail". Microsoft Exchange will attempt to identify some junk mail (i.e. harmless sales spam) and flag it, but it lets most through. It is up to the individual user to decide what is or isn't junk mail and block it through Outlook. 

*What does "spam" mean?
There is a Monty Python sketch about someone going into a restaurant to order breakfast. No matter what he orders, part of the order is "Spam, spam, spam, spam, spam, spam...". He argues that he doesn't like Spam. The waitress tries to placate him by offering him "Spam, spam, and spam. That's only got a little Spam in it." Early geek culture revolved around things like Monty Python, Star Trek, and Lord of the Rings. Spam became a metaphor for getting a lot of something you don't want and never asked for.
