  • As for what you need to consider? I don't know. Most people don't use POP3, so I'd first ask why you want to use it before I had any additional considerations...

  • Hi,

    By default, POP3 is disabled in Microsoft Exchange Server 2013. To support POP3 clients that still rely on these protocols, you need to start two POP3 services: the Microsoft Exchange POP3 service and the Microsoft Exchange POP3 Backend service.

    If you want to connect to your Exchange server using POP/SMTP protocol, you can configure your mail client manually. Please take the following steps:

    Go to your Outlook mail settings from Start > Control Panel > Mail.

    Click the Show Profiles button and click Add for a new profile.

    Choose Manually configure server settings or additional server types and type the related settings. Click OK > Next > Finish.

    Also have a look at the following links:
