Follow the steps below to set up the Outlook for Android app with your MSU Office 365 email address.


Microsoft has implemented new security protocols, mandating all Microsoft 365 business users and Outlook mobile app users to integrate Microsoft Authenticator for heightened security. This initiative reflects Microsoft's continuous commitment to fortify security measures and safeguard user accounts. However, as MSU utilizes DUO for our Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) system, there is no need for users to undergo the Microsoft  Authenticator setup process.
