new mailbox should be pop3 disabled in exchange 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    This is very urgent from my client.

    Is there any way to disable the pop3 for newly creating mailbox user in exchange 2007?

    I do not prefer to disable the pop3 service itself, just want to be disabled for new mailboxes.

    your thoughts would be helpful.

     


    Thanks & Regards, Kottees R

  • There is no option during the provisioning of the account. Your only option is to run a scheduld ps job to run daily for example to disable.

  • Hello Thomas,

    Thanks for the reply,

    But this can be done after creating the mailbox. I just wanted to be disabled by default while creating.

  • Hi,

    if you create a new mail enabled user why not using a script with this commands:

    $user=create-mailbox ...

    set-CASMailbox -identity $user -POPEnabled $false

  • Hi,

    thanks again,

    yeah we can use that too.. but preference would be EMC.. even I read few articles saying that this is not possible by default.. they were given like creating custom attribute and use filter to differentiate pop enabled and disabled users..

  • Hi,

    If you want to disable pop3 function for all the users(including new user) you can disable Microsoft Exchange POP3 services.

    Set-service msExchangePOP3 -startuptype disabled

    Stop-service -service msExchangePOP3
