    POP service
    In This Topic

    POP stands for Post Office Protocol.  This is a mail protocol that enables emails to be retrieved from a remote mailbox.  It allows you to collect emails from a hosted account on a server to your own email software, such as Outlook, Eudora etc.

    POP and SMTP servers are often the same computer. However, in some cases, one server is used for receiving mail (POP server) and another server is used for sending mail (SMTP server).

    Use the Administration Program to access the POP properties by expanding the Servers > Localhost > Connectors branch.

    Right click on the POP icon and select Properties.
