Outlook Express / Outlook 2002 [POP3]
POP3 (Post Office Protocol) Mail is the most common mail access protocol that allows your email client (Outlook Express, Microsoft Outlook, Eudora, Netscape Messenger, etc.) to download your email messages to your computer so that you can read them later without being connected to the Internet. This feature is especially important if your connection time is chargeable.
