believe this allows us to provide a comprehensive all round service meeting our
clients requirements. If you require any service not provided by these

What is POP3? - Post Office Protocol, version 3
POP3 has become the most common email client connection protocol.
It enables any email program anywhere on the Internet to connect to any
email server to perform the usual email functions, such as reading and
sending, as long as they have a valid account and password. POP3 is
an open Internet standard however was not intended to provide extensive
manipulation operations of mail on the server; normally, mail is
downloaded and then deleted. Outlook and Outlook Express however do allow
users to store emails on the server for specific periods.
For a more advanced (and complex) protocol, IMAP4
provides the solution. Click Here for more
details of our IMAP4 service
. POP3 deals with the receiving of
e-mail from your local server and should not to be confused with Simple Mail
Transfer Protocol (SMTP), a protocol for transferring e-mail between points on
the Internet. You send e-mail with SMTP and a mail handler receives it on your
recipient's behalf. Then the mail is read using POP or IMAP.
Software Supporting POP3
Many programmes support the POP3 protocol, with the most popular ones being
Outlook and Outlook Express. We provide full details of how to setup these
programmes. Other software may be used however we may lack detailed
installation procedures and therefore will require the user to have a working
knowledge of their software.
