    I have no problem entering in the user's email address and password on the IPhone.

    Then I am asked for the POP or IMAP settings.

    I have done Google searches and have not been able to get any server addresses as to exactly how to set this up.

    Finally found the solution:

    Here are the most basic steps to Configure Office365 on your iPhone/iPad:
    1.      On your iPad/iPhone, under Settings, select “Mail, Contacts, Calendars”
    2.      Press “Microsoft Exchange” to add your new account.
    3.      Enter your fully qualified e-mail name (eg. into both the Email and Username fields and your password. Click Next.
    4.      The iPad/iPhone will use Office365’s autodiscover feature to fill in the server box. Click Next.
    5.      You can customize the items that the iPad/iPhone will synchronize. Unless you’re doing something pretty unique, there is no reason not to synchronize them all.
    At this point you can access Office 365 just like any other e-mail account on your iPhone/iPad. You will have full access to the contacts, calendar and e-mail.
    Note that the iPhone / iPad only allows one Microsoft Exchange account to be configured. So if you have an existing Exchange account, you will have to remove it before adding the Office 365 account
