i need to disable IMAP and POP for about 98% of my company in an exchange 2003, 2003 server (standard) enviornment. i'd like to know if there were another way of doing this besides dealing with each client individually. can this be done via a global setting or though scripting? please point me in the right direction if you happen to be in the know. thank you.

Disable the POP and IMAP services in Control Panel on the server(s). 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.

Try downloading and using an application called ADModify You can find if by googling it.

    Or using ESM go through to the mailbox level within each mailbox store and select all the mailboxes that require the feature disabling (using the shift or CTRL keys, right click on one of the selected users, select exchange tasks and disable IMAP & pop3, this will then apply to all the selected mailboxes in one go. This may not be as clean an option as the ADModify program (not having looked at it) however you won't have to install another peice of software and or worrying about it failing or interfeering with Exchange or AD.
