How do I get WITC email on my smart phone?

     You have a few options to access your WITC email on your smart phone:

  1. Accessing your email through WITC.edu
  2. Installing the Microsoft Outlook app
  3. Adding your email account to your phone

All three options will let you read your email, installing the Microsoft Outlook app or adding your email account directly to your phone are the two easiest ways to have access to your email.

For installing the Microsoft Outlook app:
