You can disable the POP and IMAP services in Control Panel on the system. This will prevent the server from responding to requests; also block these ports on the firewall. If you want to get cute, you can also disable the protocols within the virtual server. Also there is a tool through which you can make use of the thing. All you need to do is to try downloading and using an application called ADModify. I hope this will also let you to perform for the thing. So do work well and process as needed.
