Set-ImapSettings -LoginType PlainTextLogin
Set-ImapSettings -ExternalConnectionSettings '',''

however I can't connect any suggestions would be appreciative.

Have you started IMAP service on exchange server and enabled IMAP protocol on users mailbox?

Yes to the Service but I don't think so to the Mailbox

Does not work the command or IMAP is still not working? I guess IMAP.
Do you have certificate enabled for IMAP service?

Additionally you an use get-IMAPsettings and get-exchangecertificate to check configuration.

The multi-tenant method on Exchange 2010 SP1 is no longer supported, so hopefully you have plans to move to ADP on SP2.

When you authenticate, what format are you using? It isn't clear whether you are able to make the connection or whether it connects but just fails to authenticate.
