Conclusion on Read web email - Web based email account are best way to manage your mails, but often it is not easy to handle it with pop3 mail read option or any email client reader, Here i am describing how you can do it.
I am using windows live hotmail as my default web based email address, And i want to use this email account on Pop3 enabled mail reader email clients such as thunderbird or outlook. How i can use my email address on those email clients.
Read web email
A POP3 is an updated version of Post office protocol (pop) and it stands for post office protocol version 3
and fairly used for connecting incoming and outgoing mail server to the specific email provider. In outlook or thunderbird it is used for downloading emails from your web based email provider to your computer.
You can get an email or send an email via pop3, and your email provider such as yahoo mail, windows live hotmail, gmail provide you the facility to read pop3 email in to their web based interface of email.
But what happen then if you want to view your gmail, windows live hotmail, or yahoo mail email address on pop3 enabled email clients such as thunderbird or outlook.
But there are some restrictions when you want to read your email provider’s email account in to email clients. Here i am trying to distinguish some of the limitations.
- You can’t get every service which provide by your email provider into your pop3 enabled email clients such as outlook.
- The main work of Pop3 mail readers is to give the service to read your emails.
- Pop3 Mail reader can be used as a secondary email account clients it can’t simply replace the web based email service.
Those are some of the limitations which makes Pop3 mail reader not as good alternative for web based email service, But still you can use pop3 mail reader for your web based email service.
Here are some email providers which allow pop3 mail reader email client like outlook or thunderbird to get access on to the email address to read your emails.
- Windows live hotmail email service provided by microsoft Corporation.
- Yahoo mail service provided by Yahoo Inc.
- Gmail email service provided by Google.
From those ,windows live hotmail is the best service to use with pop3 mail reader email clients because it provides most of the feature on email clients like outlook to use like a web based email service.
