Answer A Post Office Protocol (POP) mail server is a server that complies with the RFC standard 1939.



Here is a basic run down.
The Post Office Protocol - Version 3 (POP3) is intended to permit a workstation to dynamically access a maildrop on a server host in a useful fashion. Usually, this means that the POP3 protocol is used to allow a workstation to retrieve mail that the server is holding for it.
POP3 is not intended to provide extensive manipulation operations of mail on the server; normally, mail is downloaded and then deleted. A more advanced (and complex) protocol, IMAP4, is discussed in [RFC1730].


 AnswerA POP mail server (or simply "POP server") is the most common form of incoming email server. Basically, the POP server is what receives the email and is almost always used with an SMTP server, which is the outgoing server. The best way to find out the address of your POP server is to ask the company who is providing your email service. You will need to know this information if you are planning to set up an email client such as Thunderbird, Outlook, or Eudora to access your email.

 AnswerPOP (Post Office Protocol) mail client programs (e.g., Eudora, Netscape Communicator, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Outlook) allow you to retrieve your e-mail from the central server to your local computer. When someone sends you an e-mail message, the message is received, processed and stored in your mail file on the central mail server (for most this is slate).
You can access your e-mail: 1) locally by logging onto the mail server and using a mail client program (e.g., "pine" or "elm"); or 2) remotely by using a POP/IMAP client program. With a POP client your e-mail is copied/retrieved from the mail server to a local computer. With an IMAP client your e-mail is accessible remotely, but is stored and managed on the server. (A subset of POP e-mail client programs also function as IMAP clients. The advantages and disadvantages of POP vs IMAP are discussed in the "Electronic Mail Quick Reference" guide. IMAP configuration is discussed in the "IMAP Quick Reference" guide.)
