How to Set Up a Corporate E-Mail on the Samsung Galaxy S 5

By Bill Hughes

In addition to personal e-mail accounts, you can add your work e-mail to your Samsung Galaxy S 5 phone — if it’s based upon a Microsoft Exchange server, that is, and if it’s okay with your company’s IT department.

Before you get started, you need some information from the IT department of your company:

  • The domain name of the office e-mail server

  • Your work e-mail password

  • The name of your exchange server


If the folks in IT are okay with you using your phone to access its e-mail service, your IT department will have no trouble supplying you with this information.

Before you set up your work e-mail on your phone, make sure that you have permission. If you do this without the green light from your company, and you end up violating your company’s rules, you could be in hot water. Increasing your productivity won’t be much help if you’re standing out in the parking lot holding all the contents of your office in a cardboard box.

Assuming that your company wants you to be more productive with no extra cost to the company, the process for adding your work e-mail starts at your e-mail Home screen seen.

  1. Tap Manual Setup.

    It may be easier to close the keypad and to see the full screen. Tap Manual Setup.


  2. Tap Exchange Account.

    This brings up a screen. Some of the fields might be populated based upon the information that you entered at Step 5 in the preceding step list.

  3. Verify that information and enter any missing data according to what your IT department provided you.

  4. Tap Next.

    This begins the process of syncing with your work e-mail.

    Within a minute, you should start seeing your work e-mail messages appearing. If this doesn’t happen, contact the IT department at your employer.
