Online POP Email Client FAQ
 
What can I do here?
    Our main service provides you with access to your POP email from any computer on the web! With support for sending messages with attachments and many other features, you won't find a richer POP email experience on the web.
 
What is POP email?
   

POP stands for PostOffice Protocol. Normally, POP email requires email client software such as Microsoft Outlook or Netscape Communicator to retrieve and display messages.

In contrast to webmail services such as Hotmail or Yahoo Mail, with POP service you can keep your email on your computer and you don't have to be connected to the web to read saved messages. However, it becomes difficult to check your email when you're away from your computer.

That's where we come in. With our POP access service, you can access your POP email service to read messages, send replies, and compose new messages when you're away. When you get home, you can download your email as usual using your email client software.

 
How do I use it?
   

You will need three pieces of information: your email server name, your user id, and your password. This is the same information that is used by your email client software (ex. MS Outlook or Netscape Communicator).

Your user id is usually the part that comes before the @ symbol in your email address and your server name is usually the part that comes after the @ symbol.

 
What about my privacy?
   

It is our policy to do everything in our power to keep your personal information private. There is no need to register for our service. The only thing you have to give us is the user information needed to log in to your email server. Your info is removed from our server as soon as you log out.* As a secondary precaution, your session will expire after 30 minutes of inactivity.

Some similar services use cookies to store your user info, leaving it available to anyone who uses the computer after you do. With our system, each session (each time you log on) is assigned a random 25-character session id code so that no information is stored on the computer you are using. This code becomes inactive when your session expires or after you logout, leaving no way for other people to access your email account.

* Note: The custom settings under the Options heading are stored on our server. Your name and email address will not be made available to anyone for any reason whatsoever.
