    I have a few customers connecting to my Exchange server 2007 using Apple Mail, i had to enable IMAP connectivity. You can turn POP3 on too if you wanted but POP3 will remove the emails from the server. I wouls use IMAP.

    Yep, you'll need to use either IMAP or POP3 to access Exchange as Mail doesn't currently support MAPI.

    You need to remember though that IMAP or POP3 has to be enabled on the individual mailboxes that you want to access from Mail rather than just being a global setting in Exchange.

    You will also need to ensure that the IMAP and POP3 services are enabled and running (as this is not the case by default.

    You can run the following powershell commands to get this going:

    Enable IMAP/POP3 services:

    Set-Service MSExchangePop3 -StartupType automatic
    Start-Service MSExchangePop3

    Set-Service MSExchangeImap4 -StartupType automatic
    Start-Service MSExchangeImap4

    Turn on IMAP/POP3 Access for a Mailbox:

    Set-CASMailbox -Identity mailboxname -PopEnabled $true

    Set-CASMailbox -Identity mailboxname -IMAPEnabled $true

    You can obviously then script this if it's something that you need to be doing often.
