Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) is a protocol used to retrieve emails from a mail server. Users can receive emails from the server via POP3 on a single device, and the server then deletes the emails from the Inbox folder. Users are not able to view the same emails across different devices since there is no synchronization. The protocol is suitable for users who want to access their emails from a single device/PC.

MS Outlook also provides the option to users for configuring profiles with POP3 settings. But some users don’t have the knowledge for accomplishing this task. So, here we are going to help them by showing complete steps.
