Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP3, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1, Exchange Server 2007

Topic Last Modified: 2007-08-23

This topic describes how to enable POP3 and IMAP4 users to use the default protocol settings on the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Client Access server that has the Internet Message Access Protocol version 4rev1 (IMAP4) service or Post Office Protocol version 3 (POP3) service enabled.

When you use 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.

POP3 and IMAP4 parameters for the Set-CASMailbox cmdlet

Parameter Value Description

PopUseProtocolDefaults

  • $true

  • $false

This parameter lets you use the protocol default settings as specified by the Set-PopSettings cmdlet.

ImapUseProtocolDefaults

  • $true

  • $false

This parameter lets you use the protocol default settings as specified by the Set-ImapSettings cmdlet.

For more information about the Set-CASMailbox cmdlet, see Set-CASMailbox.

To perform the following procedures on the Exchange 2007 Client Access server that has the POP3 or IMAP4 service enabled, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Server Administrator role and membership in the local Administrators group for the target server.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.

  • To enable a POP3 user to use the default protocol settings for the server, run the following cmdlet:

    Set-CASMailbox -Identity CAS01 -PopProtocolDefaults $true
    
  • To disable the default protocol settings for a POP3 user on the server, run the following cmdlet:

    Set-CASMailbox -Identity CAS01 -PopProtocolDefaults $false
    

  • To enable an IMAP4 user to use the default protocol settings for the server, run the following cmdlet:

    Set-CASMailbox -Identity CAS01 -ImapProtocolDefaults $true
    
  • To disable the default protocol settings for an IMAP4 user on the server, run the following cmdlet:

    Set-CASMailbox -Identity CAS01 -ImapProtocolDefaults $false
    

For more information about syntax and parameters, see Set-CASMailbox.
