Points to Remember

💡 Note: To access your email account using POP or IMAP, you must have a Lycos Mail Plus membership.

If you want to save your storage quota and access all of your emails in one place, POP can be a decent solution. POP works by manually or automatically downloading or "popping" copies of your email messages from your Lycos Mail account to one specific place, such as your home or office computer.

Moreover, the downloaded messages are removed from the Lycos Mail server unless you choose to keep a copy in your Lycos Mail account via your mail client settings.
