IMAP and Exchange RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    We are running Exchange 2007/2010 in our environment. We have multiple AD sites, each AD site has Exchange mailbox, CAS and HT roles installed.

    We have a mailbox on an 2007 server named AppMBX1. Some of our IT team are developing an app that will access AppMBX1 using IMAP.

    As far as I know, there can be no connections using IMAP direct to a 2007/2010 Mailbox server, everything has to be done using the CAS.

    Could someone tell me

    i. How exactly (what format etc) do we make a connection to a CAS server in order to access the AppMBX1 mailbox using IMAP?

    ii. Does the CAS server we point the app to HAVE to be in the same AD site as the mailbox server holding the AppMBX1? Or is it possible, say, to point the application to a CAS in New York AD site when the AppMBX1 mailbox was held on a server in the Toronto AD site?
