What are Pop 3 Email Accounts?
In computing, the Post Office Protocol (POP) is an application-layer Internet standard protocol used by local e-mail clients to retrieve e-mail from a remote server over a TCP/IP connection.POP has been developed through several versions, with version 3 (POP3) being the current standard.
Virtually all modern e-mail clients and servers support POP3, and it along with IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) are the two most prevalent Internet standard protocols for e-mail retrieval, with many webmail service providers such as Google Mail, Microsoft Mail and Yahoo! Mail also providing support for either IMAP or POP3 to allow mail to be downloaded.
Benefits of Pop 3 Email Accounts
POP3 has several clear benefits. The fact that your emails are stored on your hard disk means that you can read and edit them even when you are not connected to the internet. You can write messages to send later, and there are often advanced features such as MailMerge and the ability to set send dates for composed emails. Processes such as changing views and opening new windows are often faster because there is no need to wait for a page to load, as in webmail. Your mailbox is only limited insofar as your hard disk is limited, and there are no limits on the size of emails that you can send. Also, opening attachments is very quick because they are automatically downloaded onto your hard disk.
