Segmentation lets you enable and disable features that are available to users in the version of Microsoft Office Outlook Web App released with Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. By default, any mail-enabled user in your Exchange 2010 organization can access their mailbox using Outlook Web App. Depending on the needs of your organization, you can use segmentation to do the following:
Restrict access to Outlook Web App for specific users.
Control access to certain Outlook Web App features for specific users.
Disable an Outlook Web App feature completely.

Many features can be set for an Outlook Web App virtual directory using the Exchange Management Console. You can also use the Set-OwaVirtualDirectory cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell to enable or disable the same features that you can enable and disable using the EMC, plus some features that you can't configure using the EMC.
For more information about the parameters you can use to configure segmentation for all users, see Set-OwaVirtualDirectory.
For more information about the features that you can configure using the EMC and how to configure them, see Configure Segmentation in Outlook Web App.
