Outlook on iOS and Android is not MDM friendly
We don’t really cover news relating iOS or Android, but in this case we had to cover it because of what we recently discovered about this current release. This current release of Outlook on iOS and Android is not MDM friendly.
At this time if your email server requires a MDM profile on the device, our app will not be able to connect.
Microsoft made the announcement yesterday that Outlook launched Outlook for Android and iOS phones and tablets. It offers a new set of features Windows computers have been using for years to the mobile arena and several other enhancements. If you are interested reading about this new release you should check out the article “A deeper look at Outlook for iOS and Android“.
After checking out https://support.office.com/en-us/learn/outlook-for-ios-and-android-faq and searching for the term MDM I found the that you cannot connect with an MDM profile in your device.
The good news is they are “working” to enable it in a future release.
