POP is pretty simple; that’s an acronym for Post Office Protocol. A communications “protocol” is just the language used between your email program, a POP client, and your ISP’s mail – or POP – server.

SMTP stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol. SMTP is used when email is delivered from an email client, such as Outlook Express, to an email server or when email is delivered from one email server to another. SMTP uses port 25.
