What is the difference between POP3 email accounts, email forwarders, and auto responders? Print

  • 0

POP3 email accounts are mailboxes used for your website email and which are checked from the server directly. A person may setup a POP3 account and retrieve their mail using a program like Eudora Mail or Microsoft Outlook. For information on setting up a specific mail client, please see the related articles.


An Email Forwarder/Alias is an email address in which all emails are automatically forwarded to an alternative existing email account. For instance, you may forward all email to [email protected] to [email protected].

 An Auto responder is an email address that will automatically reply to someone with a pre-determined response.
