Office 365 and Android

There have been several reports of users having issues setting up their Android phone to access their Office 365 email. I am one of the users that experienced an issue with setup and I wanted to pass along the solution that worked for me.

On my Android, I went to Add an Account and the Exchange server setting, To discover the proper server value, I accessed my Office 365 email via the web browser (office365.com). In the URL, the Exchange server name is listed:

Use this as the Exchange server name on your Android device and the Microsoft Exchange Activesync should connect. There have been several other posts about other Exchange server addresses that worked for others but this is the only solution that worked on my Android device.
