    Walkthrough

    First, navigate to the app store on your unmanaged, unenrolled Android device. Download VMware Boxer to your device.

    Once VMware Boxer is installed, launch the app.  You'll be asked to enter your email address.  Here we will enter our Testdrive modified email address. If you are unsure of your Testdrive email you can view it by logging   portal.vmtestdrive.com. Once logged in select "My Services" from the left column and then select the "i" button next to VMware AirWatch. Enter this email into Boxer and select "Next".

    Next, you'll be asked for your username and password. Enter your TestDrive username and password (without the domain) and select Next.

    Next, Boxer will connect to your email configuration within the AirWatch console. You'll need to authenticate with your Office 365 Testdrive email address. Enter your Testdrive password and click "Next".

    Now your device will be configured with your email, contacts, and calendar invites on your unmanaged device. If you do not have any emails in your inbox, best practice is to send yourself emails from another address.
