Notification

Unfortunately, the POP3 Mail App for Windows 8 is no longer available. The support for this app has also ended. We recommend using the built-in Mail app, which is available in Windows 8.1. Please upgrade to Windows 8.1 in order to use the latest version.

Are you having a hard time setting up your email account in the standard email app that comes with Windows 8? In that case it is likely that you are using POP3, a mail protocol which is no longer supported in Windows 8’s standard Email app. POP3 Email is your perfect alternative!

All in one place

POP3 Email is the single app that combines your entire POP3 email communications! Easily manage your inbox, outbox, sent and deleted items.

Background syncing

POP3 Email automatically checks for new emails, even when you’re not running the app. Its live tile and notifications will make sure you stay up-to-date.

Windows 8 integrated

This native Windows 8 app is deeply connected with all Windows 8 functions, like the People app for managing your contacts.

Discover POP3 Email

  • All your email at a glance

    Combining a clean and open interface with the tree-column-layout enables you to quickly manage your mailboxes and its sent and received mails and concepts. The app is also optimized for Snap View, so multitasking is easy.

  • Finally, a setup that speaks human language

    To quickly set up your email account, we’ve put a lot of effort in the initial setup. Since configuring your POP3 and SMTP server settings can be a bit tricky, we’ll guide you all the way through, in a way everyone understands.
