POP3 Account

POP3 stands for Post Office Protocol version 3. It was designed to support "offline" email processing. When you open your mailbox, new mail is moved from the email server and saved on your personal computer. While the emails not yet downloaded and deleted from the email sever, they can be viewed from any Internet connection.

What are the advantages of POP3 email account?

  • You do not have to stay connected to the Internet. You can log on when you want to receive and send new messages. Once your new messages have been downloaded to your computer, they can be read whether connected to the Internet or not.
  • POP3 is a very popular email protocol and just about all email clients support it.
  • A new feature with TPG POP3 email account is Free Folders. The new feature will allow you to store the emails you receive, create or send through our Post Office.
