Get-ItemProperty

i am trying to determine what the number output of this powershell command

Get-ItemProperty 'hklm:\system\currentcontrolset\services\MSExchangeIMAP4' | Select Start

actually represents. It retunrs a number, but I cant find any documentation on what the numbers actually represent, it will be the service status, i.e. running, but I cant find any sort of key to determine what the numbers represents. If of any use, its relating to an exchange 2010 server running on windows 2008 r2 server.

No, this is not the service status; this is the start type of the service.
In short:
0 = Kernel
1 = I/O Subsystem
2 = Automatic Start
3 = Manual Start
4 = Disabled
Check here for details:
CurrentControlSet\Services Subkey Entries

To get the status of a service, use Get-Service and check the Status property:
Get-Service MSExchangeIMAP4 | Select Status or (Get-Service MSExchangeIMAP4).Status
