Post Office Protocol (POP, POP2 or POP3)

POP is a process that transfers your e-mail messages from our servers to your computer’s hard drive. You can access your messages using an e-mail program installed on your computer. POP allows you to:

* Use the e-mail software currently installed on your computer
