Windows style email clients (as I call them) came into existence because of the need to run email clients on machines which were not also running an email server. Windows style email clients get mail from a mail server via the POP3 or IMAP protocols and send mail to a mail server via the SMTP protocol.

See AboutThesePages.



<This came from another page -- requires editing.>

In order for us to use Windows style email clients on the LAN, the email server we set up must be able to communicate with clients via the SMTP and POP3 and/or IMAP protocols. Postfix (or any MTA) provides the ability to receive mail (at the server) via SMTP on port 25, but cannot directly handle POP3 or IMAP, so we must install some more software, POP3 and/or IMAP daemons.
