What is POP3 & SMTP?
POP3 stands for "Post Office Protocol". This is a standard protocol (method) for receiving e-mail. POP is a client/server protocol in which e-mail is received and held for you by our a server. Periodically, you check your mail-box on the server (eg using Outlook or Thunderbird) and download any email using POP3.
SMTP stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol. This is a protocol (method) for sending e-mail messages. Most email systems that send mail over the Internet use SMTP to send messages from one server to another; the messages can then be retrieved with an e-mail client. We offer an authenticated SMTP service to our hosting clients.
