IMAP4 Account Name

An IMAP4 account name is the alias name of a Microsoft Exchange Server mailbox that supports IMAP4. For example, the alias for Suzan Fine's mailbox is SuzanF.

Because Microsoft Exchange Server uses Windows NT user accounts for authentication, it may be necessary to specify the mailbox's Windows NT domain, user account, and alias name. Performance can be improved by including the mailbox's Windows NT domain in the IMAP4 account name.

Keep the following in mind when you set up your IMAP4 client's account name:

Note   With Windows NT Challenge/Response, it is not possible to specify the name of the Microsoft Exchange Server mailbox you want to access. By default, Microsoft Exchange Server attempts to access the mailbox associated with the Windows NT user account that the user is logged on as. For example, if you are logged on as Domain\Suzanf, with Windows NT Challenge/Response enabled, Microsoft Exchange Server attempts to access the mailbox called Suzanf.
