This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to configure your connectivity options for connecting to servers running Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 by using POP3. By using the settings for this cmdlet, you can specify the ports to use to connect computers running Exchange Server 2010 that have the Client Access server role installed to Exchange 2007 servers. By default, this value should be set to use port 110. This cmdlet also lets you disable access to Exchange 2007 servers. 

After you have configured POP3 access to Exchange 2007, you must restart the POP3 service. For more information about how to restart the POP3 service, see Start and Stop the POP3 Service.
