1. General Instructions
You will need to know your Oxford username (typically four letters and four numbers, e.g. pemb0471) and password before starting.
If you are have a lot of data (email, contacts, etc) to synchronise then you are advised to do the initial synchronisation via a wireless connection if possible; it will be faster and less likely to lose the connection during synchronisation.
Please note: you can only configure your Windows Mobile device 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 delete the pairing to the existing Exchange account. (See below for how to delete a pairing.)
[Start]Menu and follow the 'set up your device' link.

firstname.lastname@example.org, e.g. if your username is pemb0471 you would enter
email@example.com. Leave the
Domainfield blank. If you want to allow automatic updating and syncing, enter your password in the
Passwordfield and tick the 'Save password' box below.
Please note firstname.lastname@example.org is NOT your email address, it is only used by the auto-discovery system to find an account.

3. Deleting an existing pairing
If you are already synced with another Exchange server you'll need to delete that pairing first before you can pair with Nexus. This will remove all items that are synced with that server.
[Menu > Options > Delete].
