With an Exchange account set up on your Android phone, you will not find one built-in application to handle all of the apps in one location; instead, you have to view the email, calendar, and contacts separately. Fortunately, when you set up the email account for an Exchange server, it automatically pulls the information for calendar and contacts — as long as you’ve set it up to do so.

Battery drain warning

If you set up an Exchange account that you know has very heavy traffic, you might want to be careful about setting Automatic (Push); instead, you should set that at a more reasonable option, such as every 5 or 10 minutes. If you’re not as concerned about your battery (for instance, if you have multiple means of charging your phone), go ahead and Push away!

Multiple accounts

After setting up Exchange, you might wonder if you can have multiple accounts. You can only set up one Exchange account with the built-in tools, but you can purchase a tool, such as TouchDown, to allow you to configure unlimited Exchange accounts.

Troubleshooting

It should be very simple to set up these accounts. If you have trouble with this process, the cause is most likely an incorrect address or password.
