Email, Exchange, Does Exchange support using POP3
Unfortunately, the POP protocol is not allowed for connections to Exchange accounts. We do not allow POP3 on the Exchange system for a few reasons:
I want to POP my Exchange email to an email client or via another email service, like Gmail.
- The protocol is extremely resource intensive for the mail servers.
- Mail cannot be restored.
- POP3 client applications can only be used to download messages from the e-mail server to a single folder (usually the Inbox) on the client computer.
- The POP3 protocol can't synchronize multiple folders on the e-mail server with multiple folders on the client computer.
- POP3 also doesn't support public folder access.
