New-PopSubscription

This cmdlet is available only in the cloud-based service. The New-PopSubscription cmdlet allows a user to create POP subscriptions in their own cloud-based mailbox. An administrator can't use this cmdlet to create subscriptions in another user's mailbox. For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Exchange cmdlet syntax (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/bb123552.aspx).

Description

The New-PopSubscription cmdlet creates a connection between a user's cloud-based mailbox and a remote POP mailbox. The cloud-based mailbox periodically polls the POP mailbox for new messages.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although this topic lists all parameters for the cmdlet, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To find the permissions required to run any cmdlet or parameter in your organization, see Find the permissions required to run any Exchange cmdlet (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt432940.aspx).

Examples

-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

New-PopSubscription -Name "Contoso POP" -EmailAddress bjohnson@contoso.com -IncomingUserName bjohnson -IncomingPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString -String 'Pa$$word1' -AsPlainText -Force) -IncomingServer pop.contoso.com -IncomingSecurity Ssl -IncomingPort 995

This example creates the POP subscription Contoso POP in the mailbox of the user Brian Johnson. The remote POP mailbox has the following details:

  • Email address: bjohnson@contoso.com

  • User name: bjohnson

  • Password: Pa$$word1

  • POP server: pop.contoso.com

  • Authentication method: SSL

  • TCP port: 995

Required Parameters

-EmailAddress

The EmailAddress parameter specifies the email address of the POP mailbox.

Type:SmtpAddress
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online
-IncomingPassword

The IncomingPassword parameter specifies the password used to sign in to the POP mailbox. You must specify the value for this parameter in a secure format, for example, (ConvertTo-SecureString -String '<password>' -AsPlainText -Force).

Type:SecureString
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online
-IncomingServer

The IncomingServer parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the POP server, for example, incoming.contoso.com.

Type:Fqdn
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online
-IncomingUserName

The IncomingUserName parameter specifies the user name used to sign in to the POP mailbox.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online
-Name

The Name parameter specifies the name of the POP subscription. The name of the subscription doesn't have to be globally unique. The name must be unique compared to other subscriptions that exist in the same mailbox.

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online

Optional Parameters

-Confirm

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online
-DisplayName

The DisplayName parameter specifies the friendly name of the POP subscription. If you don't specify a value for the DisplayName parameter, the value of the EmailAddress parameter is used.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False

-Force

The Force parameter instructs the command to create the subscription even if those settings can't be verified by the remote POP server.

Type:Basic | Spa
Position:Named

-IncomingPort

The IncomingPort parameter specifies the TCP port number used by POP clients to connect to the POP server. Typical values are 110 for unencrypted connections and 995 for encrypted connections. By default, the value of the IncomingPort parameter is set to 110 if you don't set the IncomingSecurity parameter to Ssl or Tls. If you set the IncomingSecurity parameter to Ssl or Tls, the value of the IncomingPort parameter is set to 995.
