Step 3:

If the iPhone comes back and says setup has failed you will need to go back in the the settings and add the domain (tamug.edu) and also go to "advanced" and make sure SSL is set to "On".

Finally, you will be sent to a screen that will ask you if you want to sync your contact and calendars as well.  

These options can be left off if you choose to stay with your current contact list or calendars

Tap "Done" on the top-right hand side, and you are set.



Note: Only mail will push to your phone, unless you tell it to push everything. To do so:

 

(A)Tap "Mail, Contacts, and Calendars" button in the "Preferences" app.  

(B)Then tap the TAMUG email you created and tap "Mail Folders to Push" button at the bottom. 

(C)Tap the folder(s) that you want the device to push, and your phone will synchronize those folders automatically.

Also, make sure the Push switch is "On" for your mail in the "Mail, Contacts, and Calendars" preference menu under "Fetch New Data".
