Outlook Pop Email Accounts

There are different types of email service accounts and providers. For instance, there are POP3 email service and IMAP services. Each allows the account holder a different array of features and options, but they are all geared at sending and receiving messages electronically across the Internet.
When people talk about Outlook POP email messaging, they are usually referring to one of the most common ways that POP3 emails are handled. It helps to understand what the POP environment is, in order to see why it is used for the Outlook email client (among many other programs and web based services).
POP means "post office protocol?, and it is usually the transit route for an email client or service to deliver and receive messages. It is very similar to the old-fashioned "snail mail? service; in that it accepts the message, routes it to the exact recipient indicated, and then delivers it without retaining any portion of the original message. Just like physical mail is accepted at the post office, sent to the recipient, and then delivered to the destination without anything remaining with the mail carrier; POP messages are sent and deleted from the server.
 A simple explanation would illustrate the system as follows: a computer user sends an email message to a friend, and the message goes to the server-which is the home base for that address. The friend will then login to their account, and the server would then "talk? to the email client being used. The client would accept all of the email and the server would delete any record of the messages it was holding.
This means that the recipient would have to store all emails on their actual computer hard drive, if they wanted to retain them permanently. If they wanted to reply to the email they received; they would simply draft it and hit "send?. The email client (program) would know to route it through the POP server to the recipient.

Benefits of the POP Accounts

Many modern computer users opt for a POP account, because they are usually free of charge and remarkably flexible. Many large-scale operations with numerous computers will use this option too. One of the preferred clients is the Outlook program mentioned above. Interestingly enough, many larger email services will provide clients with access to POP and IMAP accounts or options, because they do offer so many features and possibilities.
When a consumer or professional needs to use an email tracer; it is often the POP accounts that yield the most information. This is because email tracers tend to follow the message back to the IP address from which it originated. The nature of the POP accounts allows the tracing service to determine the IP address of the server, which can often follow the message back to the actual account holder or specific email address.
