    • Domain: Leave blank
    • Username: ename@colostate.edu
    • Password: Your eID Password

  6. Click "Next" and the device should verify the settings you entered and present a new screen with on/off toggles for syncing e-mail, contacts, and calendar.
  7. Select desired options and click "Save"
  8. Restart (power cycle) your iPhone or iPad.
