The Post Office Protocol (Pop3) allows computers to retrieve
messages from mailboxes on mail servers. This can be done via email
clients or via webbased pop3 readers.
Since The POP3 protocol does not support multi-mailbox accounts, it is
a better choice to find an imap service. IMAP (Internet Messaging Access
Protocol) is more sophisticated than the Post Office Protocol (POP3) protocol.
Messages can be archived in folders, mailboxes can be shared, and a user
can access multiple mail servers. There is also better integration with
MIME, which is used to attach files. On this page you will get the list
af free pop3, free imap and free smtp service providers available worldwide!
Meanwhile SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) servers route SMTP messages
throughout the Internet to a mail server, such as POP3 or IMAP4, which
provides a message store for incoming mail. You can find more info about
these services and terms on F.A.Q page
and through the forum. While you are browsing through the pages, please do not hesitate
me for any reason you have. To have
up-to-date listing please inform me broken/dead links and new services
you come across on the net :)
