Part 2. Set POP3 Email on iPad

POP is short for Post Office Protocol. It stands for a protocol that used to retrieve email from mail server. Tough some email applications can use the IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol), most email applications use POP protocol. There are two versions, POP2 and POP3. POP2 requires SMTP to send messages and POP3 can be use.
There are two versions of POP. The first, called POP2, became a standard in the mid-80's and requires SMTP to send messages. The newer version, POP3, can be used with or without SMTP.
