Office 365, Email, Exchange, Does Exchange support using POP3

I want to POP my Exchange email to an email client or via another email service, like Gmail.

Unfortunately, the POP (Post Office Protocol) protocol is not allowed for connections to Exchange accounts. We do not allow POP3 on the Exchange system for a few reasons:

  • The protocol is extremely resource intensive for the mail servers.
  • Mail cannot be restored.
  • POP3 client applications can only be used to download messages from the e-mail server to a single folder (usually the Inbox) on the client computer.
  • The POP3 protocol can't synchronize multiple folders on the e-mail server with multiple folders on the client computer.
  • POP3 also doesn't support public folder access.

You can set up a connection to Exchange via IMAP using the settings found at Office 365, Email, Exchange, IMAP Email Access to Exchange
