Can I use email programs like Outlook to read mail from my pop3 account?
You can read email at your pop3 account using any standard email software such as MS Outlook, Netscape Mail, or Eudora. The specific method will vary based on the client you use, but you'll always have to set your incoming server and SMTP server as "mail.yourdomain.com" and enter the username and password for the mailbox you want to check.

You can choose either IMAP or POP3 as the server type.
