What is a pop3 account?
There are two kinds of email addresses, email forwarding addresses ( virtual email) and email addresses that actually store mail messages as files on a server ( a POP3 account). For example, if you send a message to your virtual address email@example.com that forwards mail to the pop3 account you have with your ISP, firstname.lastname@example.org, the actual message sent to email@example.com would be invisibly rerouted to xyz.net's server, where you would retrieve it using your firstname.lastname@example.org account. Thus, a forwarding address just passes mail on to a destination pop3 account, while a pop3 account actually stores mail.
Most people use email forwarding, which can be set up in your console. To set up a POP3 account, please send us an email with the address you would like to use at your domain and a password. We will set up your POP account and notify you when it is ready.
When you connect to the mail server to retrieve your mail, your email client configuration will be:
Incoming Mailserver: megaton.net
Note: The mail server may take up to 24 hr to complete your changes.
