Exchange Server Features

 

ADManager Plus supports enabling/disabling the following features of the Exchange Server

  • Outlook Mobile Access: Enabling Outlook Mobile Access makes the user to access their exchange information using a mobile device. The users can browse their mailbox with a cell phone or other wireless device.

  • Outlook Web Access: Enabling Outlook Web Access makes the user to access their mails through a Web browser. This feature is enabled for each user by default.

  • Exchange ActiveSync: Allows user to synchronize their emails, contacts, calendar and tasks from their Exchange server to their mobile devices like smartphones, tablets, etc., whenever needed.

  • MAPI Protocol: Allows users to access their Exchange mailboxes using the Outlook or other MAPI clients. If this protocol is disabled, users will have to access their mailboxes using the Outlook web-client or mobile-client.

  • IMAP4 Support: Internet Message Access Protocol version 4 (IMAP4) is an Internet messaging protocol that enables a client to access email on a server, rather than downloading it to the user's computer. IMAP4 enables users to access and manipulate messages stored within mailboxes. IMAP4 also allows users to access public folders or multiple email folders, search through a mailbox, etc.

  • POP3 Support: Post Office Protocol version 3 (POP3) is an Internet messaging protocol that enables a POP3 client to download email from a server. This protocol works well for computers that are unable to maintain a continuous connection to a server. POP3 does not allow users to manipulate messages on the server. Email is simply downloaded to the client where messages are managed. POP3 provides access only to a user's Inbox; it does not support access to public folders.
