[Trouble] If your device fails to detect the server automatically, it is likely that you have misspelled your email address and/or password. Please check both again to make sure they are spelled correctly and try again.

Another thing you can try is to switch your device to 4G or 3G by turning Wifi off and then try again. The issue may be that your Wifi router is not relaying the DNS entry for the Office365 service to auto-detect the server name correctly. Switching to 4G can sometimes resolve this.

If you’ve checked your name and password and the device is still asking for a server name and username, please fill them out as shown below:
