NOTE: If you are prompted at any time during the setup to enter a servername, you can use outlook.office365.com for incoming servers and smtp.office365.com for outgoing servers.

Next, pull down the Android notification bar by swiping down from the top of your screen.

If you see a notification that reads “Unable to sync calendar and contacts,” tap it. Then tap Allow to give access, and you’re done!
