1. General Instructions
To configure your iPhone or iPod Touch manually to connect to Nexus e-mail, please follow the guidelines below.
Please note: Pre G3 iPhone/iPod Touch devices can only be configured to connect to one Exchange account at any one time. So if you already have an Exchange account configured then you will not be able to add your Nexus account until/unless you remove the existing Exchange account. However, phones and devices using the iOS4 operating system can connect to multiple Exchange accounts. This applies to iPhone 3G and later phones and devices.
You will need to know your Oxford username (typically four letters and four numbers, e.g. oucs0037) and password before starting. Please make sure that WiFi is enabled.
