Setup of exchange accounts on apple ios 11 devices.

Since the introduction of iOS 11 on September 2017, customers have been having issues setting up their Exchange accounts as more information is required.

Before starting, close any background apps and restart the device
Now make sure you are connected to a WIFI connection as we have found that 3G/4G connections are not as reliable and you get a longer delay where people think it has not worked.
Now click on settings.
Now click on Accounts and Passwords

Now click on Add Account and select Exchange

Now type in your email address and description of the account (usually the email address again will be fine) and click next

Now click on Sign In

Now the phone will start verifying and depending upon the Exchange server it is connecting to you will get one of the following screens:
