For setting up a POP email account you need to create an email source in the left panel, then choose POP and fill the settings shown below. POP is one of the oldest email protocols and it lacks some features such as searching and instant email retrieval. Most of the email services support it for backwards compatibiliy with old apps.

Once “POP server” is chosen, the rest of required parameters appear. Most of the servers require SSL (secure connection) and listen on the port 995 but refer to yout hosting provider for the exact settings.

Use POP only if your email provider does not support a more feautured protocol like IMAP or Exchange. You may need folder support or searching while listing the emails from Email Parser.
