POP3 (post office protocol, version 3) is a protocol for getting e-mail off of a web server. If you use Outlook Express or Netscape Messenger you're using POP3. Some web-based e-mail accounts use this protocol as well (in fact, I think you can set up Outlook Express to work with a hotmail account).
