This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to enable or disable Post Office Protocol version 3 (POP3) for a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 mailbox user.

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Recipient Administrator role

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

  1. Start the Exchange Management Console.

  2. In the console tree, expand Recipient Configuration, and then click Mailbox.

  3. In the result pane, select the mailbox user for whom you want to enable or disable POP3.

  4. In the action pane, under the name of the mailbox user, click Properties.

  5. In <Mailbox User> Properties, on the Mailbox Features tab, click POP3, and then click either Enable or Disable.

  6. Click OK.

  • To enable POP3 for the user named John Smith, run the following command.

    Set-CASMailbox -Identity "John Smith" -POPEnabled $true
    
  • To disable POP3 for the user named John Smith, run the following command.

    Set-CASMailbox -Identity "John Smith" -POPEnabled $false
    

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Set-CASMailbox.

noteNote:
In the release to manufacturing (RTM) version of Exchange 2007, you can enable or disable POP3 for a mailbox only by using the Set-CASMailbox cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell.

  • To enable POP3 for the user named John Smith, run the following command.

    Set-CASMailbox -Identity "John Smith" -POPEnabled $true
    
  • To disable POP3 for the user named John Smith, run the following command.
