POP3 Service Technical Reference

The POP3 service enables a server to host e-mail accounts and includes tools to administer the servers, domains, and mailboxes.

The POP3 service performs the tasks of message download and request handling on a Microsoft Windows-based server, where message download consists of transmitting the messages from a folder in the file system to clients and request handling is performed according to the POP3 protocol, which defines how the server responds to requests sent from an e-mail client.
