SMTP = Simple Mail Transfer Protocol : send mails
POP3 = Post Office Protocol : retrieve mails from mail server

Hi there,

SMTP - uses TCP port 25 by default
POP3 - uses TCP port 110 by default

Good luck & Take care.

Hi there,

Internet Messaging Access Protocol. A remote mailbox access protocol. It enables efficient operation such as downloading only essential data by first acquisitioning the e-mail header prior to actual e-mail download. This feature makes the protocol well suited to remote environments.

Kindly refer to below attached link for further reading & understanding, hope it helps. Good luck & Take care.

Hi We have an application that during a process we need to check that a remote POP3 Server and SMTP Server are accessable. Ideally we just want to open a connection and close it immediately. Is this possible without a third party tool? Any advice is much appreciated.
