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

Topic Last Modified: 2011-04-28

If you administer POP3 and IMAP4, you'll perform all your administrative tasks in the Exchange Management Shell or the Exchange Management Console.

You can use the Shell to manage the POP3 and IMAP4 services on a per-server basis or on a per-user basis in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010.

You can view and configure POP3 and IMAP4 settings on the Exchange 2010 Client Access server by using the cmdlets included in the following table.

Cmdlets for managing POP3 and IMAP4

Cmdlet name Description

Set-PopSettings

This cmdlet can be used to configure all available settings for POP3 on a Client Access server.

For more information about how to use the Set-PopSettings and Set-ImapSettings cmdlets to manage POP3 and IMAP4 settings for a user, see Set-PopSettings and Set-ImapSettings.

You can use the Set-CASMailbox cmdlet in the Shell to manage POP3 and IMAP4 settings for individual users by modifying properties on their mailboxes. The following table describes the parameters that you can use with the Set-CASMailbox cmdlet.
