I have a new 2K7 Exch server and I need to setup POP3 I have found an article below but there are some items in the solution that I am not sure off.  My clients are Outlook Express 6.  

In question 2 how do I know which one to use a or b and what is the IP adderss:port that I should use.

Any help would be appreciated.


1. Set MSExchangePOP3 service to automatic - I HAVE SET THE POP3 TO AUTOMATIC
Set-service msExchangePOP3 -startuptype automatic

2.Configure IP Address and Port for POP3

a.To set the IP address and port for communicating with Exchange using POP3 with SSL, run the following command:
    Set-PopSettings -SSLBindings: IPaddress:Port

b.To set the IP address and port for communicating with Exchange using POP3 with no encryption or Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption,    
    Set-PopSettings -UnencryptedOrTLSBindings IPaddress:Port

3.Configure POP3 Authentication - POP3 (110) /POP3 SSL (995)

a.If you will not be using TLS encryption and you want to allow Basic authentication on an unsecured port, run the following command:
   Set-PopSettings -LoginType PlainTextLogin

b.If you will not be using TLS, but you want to restrict Basic authentication to use only secured ports, run the following command:
   Set-PopSettings -LoginType PlainTextAuthentication

c.If you want to use TLS encryption before authentication, run the following command:
   Set-PoPSettings -LoginType SecureLogin

4.Enable POP3 Protocol for the User Mailbox

Set-CasMailbox MailboxName -Popenabled:$true

5.Configure the SMTP Receive Connector on the Exchange Server to Allow Anonymous in order to send Email using the following command:
Set-ReceiveConnector "Servername\default Servername" -PermissionGroups
“ExchangeServers,ExchangeUsers,ExchangeLegacyServers,AnonymousUsers"

6.Restart the Microsoft Exchange POP3 Service
   Restart-service MSExchangepop3

Shooting from the hip here:

but the ports are in the article?

 POP3 (110) /POP3 SSL (995)

so

-SSLBindings: x.x.x.x:995

or

UnencryptedOrTLSBindings  x.x.x.x:110

where x.x.x.x is an address on a network interface attached to the server?

110 and 995 being the standard ports for these services, but configurable by my guess.

Thanks that seemed to work. On number 5 command, I am not sure what goes in this section.  The name of my exch 07 server is sdexch, at 10.1.1.107, should it be

Set-Receiveconnector "sdexch" -PermissionGroups "sdexch" ????

Your help is greatly appreciated

Set-ReceiveConnector "Servername\default Servername" -PermissionGroups
"ExchangeServers,ExchangeUsers,ExchangeLegacyServers,AnonymousUsers"

The name is the name of the connector on the hub transport role. You could use get-receiveconnector to list them all.

The Permissions on the connector can be seen and changed in the GUI -

The syntax of the command and an example can be seen here:

Hey JimboEfx:
I did all three of these

a.If you will not be using TLS encryption and you want to allow Basic authentication on an unsecured port, run the following command:
   Set-PopSettings -LoginType PlainTextLogin

b.If you will not be using TLS, but you want to restrict Basic authentication to use only secured ports, run the following command:
   Set-PopSettings -LoginType PlainTextAuthentication

c.If you want to use TLS encryption before authentication, run the following command:
   Set-PoPSettings -LoginType SecureLogin

I only needed to do

a. set-PopSettings -LoginType PlainTextlogin
It is working now, some times I wonder if I have a brain.

If you have any comments about logging in this was I would appreciate them.
