Follow the steps below to download the Outlook app on an iOS device and to add your MSU faculty or student email address to it.



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.



  1. Open the App store on your iOS device and search for Microsoft Outlook.   
  2. Download the app and then click Open.
  3. Click the Get Started button.
  4. The Add Email Account screen opens.
  5. Enter your MSU email address as shown below:
    Faculty/Staff: [email protected]
    Student: [email protected]
    You are redirected to the MSU Office 365 login page.
  6. Enter your [email protected] and NetID password.
    (For example: [email protected])

Your email account will now be ready to use on the Outlook app.
