What is a POP3 e-mail account ?
POP3 mailboxes reside on a POP3 server. The emails in these mailboxes can be retrieved on to your PC by using an e-mail client (or mail program). Mail clients include Microsoft's Outlook and Outlook Express. The mail client uses POP3 to copy the mail from your POP3 mailbox to your PC. Once the mail has been retrieved you do not need to be connected to the internet while it is being read, as the mail client will be reading the retrieved mail on your PC.
