Make the most of POP settings

POP settings (sometimes called service types) provide you with the ability to specify the way users are presented with POP choices. For example, you can set some POPs to appear only when a user is dialing with a modem. Users can then use the differences between POP connections to search for the POPs that suit their needs and filter out the ones they do not want. The more you can differentiate between POPs, the less a user will need to search.

The following table shows available POP settings and what they do. The first column lists options for each POP setting, with default options in bold type. You can set these options when you add or edit POPs, whether you are using the Phone Book Administrator (PBA) graphical interface or command-line interface.
