Pop Email Account
POP, or rather POP3, email accounts allow you to send and receive emails to and from your own computer.
POP emails are stored on a mail server until you choose to download them for viewing, once they are downloaded they are removed from the mail server. Fortunately, emails stored on the mail server are only deleted once you have downloaded these to your computer, so you should never loose any mail.
Many people use email clients such as Outlook or Outlook Express to write, send and collect their emails addressed to their POP email account. Most email clients will allow many POP email accounts to be created, so when you check for your new mail, you computer will log on individually to collect from separate accounts.
