POP3 is the abbreviation for Post Office Protocol - a data format for delivery of emails across the Internet. Most web hosting accounts come with a fixed or unlimited number of POP3 Email accounts that clients can use to store and download incoming email. For example, you can create a POP3 account such as email@example.com and all emails to that address will be stored on that POP3 account. You can then download the email messages to your computer using POP3 compliant email software such as Outlook Express or Eudora. Back to up
