Setting up the POP3 service

The Domino® POP3 service can run on any Domino® server on which a TCP/IP port is configured. The POP3 protocol provides a mechanism for retrieving mail only; POP3 clients send mail using the SMTP protocol.


  1. Edit the Server Document to enable the TCP/IP port for POP3. Optionally, you can configure the POP3 TCP/IP port to run from an alternate port number, and to accept TLS connections.
  2. Start the POP3 task on the Domino® server.
