Exchange 2013 CU2 & wildcard certs

How would I use a wildcard cert for IMAP & POP with Exchange 2013?

I've seen this article:

but nowhere does it give you the syntax and/or parameters for set-imapsettings AND set-popsettings.

When you run the below command The mention services in command automatically assgin to certificate.

Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Thumbprint 5113ae0233a72fccb75b1d0198628675333d010e -Services POP,IMAP,SMTP

There is not  syntax and/or parameters for set-imapsettings AND set-popsettings in certificate.

IMAP and pop3 setting is use in outlook.

To set imap and pop3 setting refer below link :

Does this change if we plan to set up a DAG?  Does the DNS entry point to the DAG IP?   POP and IMAP settings would also use that FQND?  

I'm not sure what your saying - the article I read explicitly read not to use

Enable-ExchangeCertificate for wildcard certificates.

DAG is just for the database. Has nothing to do with the client access functionality at all.

Personally I don't use wildcard certificates, they give problems still.
I don't really think it matters what settings you put in to IMAP and POP, as the host names are just used to publish to Outlook. If you are going to use POP3S or IMAPS then entering the host name as *.example.com should probably be enough.
