 What is POP3?
Solution
'POP3' stands for Post Office Protocol-version 3 and is a server which stores your email.

When an email is sent to you, it is stored on a server (called the POP3 server) until it is downloaded via your email client (Outlook, Netscape Mail, etc.).

When you purchase a hosting package with Teckna you will automatically be given a number of POP3 mailboxes. These mailboxes can be assigned to a specific email address, allowing you to access them using a program such as Teckna Webmail, Outlook Express or Mozilla ThunderBird.
