How can I get my FVTC email on my phone or mobile device?

How can I get my FVTC email at work using my work's Outlook?
Talk with your employer's IT department. If you currently use Outlook at your work to view that account, you might be able to add the FVTC account to monitor right in the same window.
Outlook does allow for multiple accounts to be monitored. But each employer may have different rules.
If you need the server name, please use outlook.office365.com for inbound and outbound mail.
If that doesn't work, see below for how to access your email in an open web browser you use.
How can I get my FVTC email easily, when I also check my personal account using a web browser?
Are there any other ways to get my email on my phone?
Another option is to download the Outlook app from the iTunes or Google Play stores. Then you can add all of your accounts, your FVTC, Google, Yahoo and others into one app and see all your accounts in one spot.
Why does FVTC require me to use FVTC email?
Another reason is consistency. Many instructors already require students to use FVTC email for class communication. This creates a consistent policy for all program students.
I still have questions, who can I contact?
The FVTC Helpdesk can be contacted for assistance with setting up your phone, your office computer or even walking you through options to set-up your browser. Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-735-5644 or stop by our offices in Appleton in A120.
Who can get a FVTC email account?
- Program students - All program students
receive an @fvtc.edu email address and will have this set as his/her preferred email. They will NOT be
able to change their preferred email address to a personal email address. Applying for a program does not grant an @fvtc.edu email address, students must be admitted in a program to receive the email address.
- General public (Personal Professional Development (PPD)) – PPD students do not receive an @fvtc.edu email address. They will retain the ability to select a preferred email address and will use a personal address for communicating with FVTC.
