I have heard earlier today that the POP3 e-mail protocol is not supported in Windows 8 (I am also assuming here that this is also true for Windows Server 2012, since they are built on the same NT code platform?).
If this is the case, does this also mean that POP3-based e-mail accounts in Outlook 2010 will no longer function correctly, on an upgrade from Windows Server 2008 R2 to Server 2012, or Windows 7 to Windows 8? If so, are there also currently any third-party COTS software applications available that will restore POP3 functionality to Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8?

Sunday, November 18, 2012 8:49 AMThe "Mail" app (Modern UI) does not support POP3, but this has no effect on the platform itself. Windows itself permits POP3 just as it always has, you just need a suitable client application, so Live Essentials, or Outlook, or Eudora or whatever are just fine.
