(Post Office Protocol 3) A standard mail server commonly used on the Internet. It provides a message store that holds incoming e-mail until users log on and download it. POP3 is a simple system with little selectivity. All pending messages and attachments are downloaded at the same time POP3 uses the SMTP messaging protocol. See IMAP and messaging system.
(Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) The standard e-mail protocol on the Internet. It is a TCP/IP protocol that defines the message format and the message transfer agent (MTA), which stores and forwards the mail. SMTP was originally designed for only ASCII text, but MIME and other encoding methods enable program and multimedia files to be attached to e-mail messages.
SMTP servers route SMTP messages throughout the Internet to a mail server, such as POP3 or IMAP4, which provides a message store for incoming mail. See POP3, IMAP and messaging system. See also SNMP.

Will someone please explain POP3 in detail?
What it is/How to do it, etc.
Please include an answer to the following question as well:
If an account that has been retrieving mail from other accounts is sent mail, what happens to the message that was sent directly to that address, if it's not receiving it, but it's also not being returned to the sender?
