Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

You can enable POP3 and IMAP4 users to use the default protocol settings on the Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Client Access server that has the IMAP4 service or POP3 service enabled.

In addition to using the Set-PopSettings or Set-ImapSettings cmdlets to manage POP3 and IMAP4 settings for all your users, you can also use the Set-CASMailbox cmdlet to specify individual POP3 and IMAP4 settings for your users. You can also use the Set-CASMailbox cmdlet to enable a user to use the default protocol settings for a server when you use the Set-PopSettings or Set-ImapSettings cmdlets.

The following table shows the parameters to use to configure a POP3 or IMAP4 user to use the protocol default settings as specified on the Client Access server.
