I need to permit SSL and non non-ssl clients to use IMAP.

What is the command to enable IMAP in SSL and non-SSL mode?

  • Why would you use IMAP over Outlook Anywhere? – KCotreau Jun 3 '11 at 20:09

    @KCotreau sometimes applications use IMAP to pick up mail. I've created a helpdesk system which does this for example. – Ben Pilbrow Jun 3 '11 at 20:15
  • OK, then I would ask is he doing this for an application, or for actual users. If for users, then see question #1. I think IMAP stinks. – KCotreau Jun 3 '11 at 20:23

    This is for an application that doesn't support Outlook Anywhere. – halfbit Jun 3 '11 at 21:03
  • OK, at least that makes more sense. – KCotreau Jun 3 '11 at 21:39

Not sure if this does it for you, but (first two are just in case):

Set-service msExchangeIMAP4 -startuptype automatic
Start-service msExchangeIMAP4
Set-CASMailbox -Identity "John Smith" -IMAPEnabled $true

Then one of the following depending on how secure you want it:

Set-ImapSettings -LoginType PlainTextLogin
Set-ImapSettings -LoginType PlainTextAuthentication
Set-ImapSettings -LoginType SecureLogin

You can also set security in the Management Console here: Server Configuration>Client Access>POP3 and IMAP>Properties>Authentication.
