    Our CEO is very picky with technology since he isn't that great with it. He asked me to purchase him a Surface. he has POP3 email and wants to be able to check it on the Surface but messages to be left on server so when he is back at his main PC, they are still there. Once at his main PC, is good with them downloading from the sever. He just wants the Surface be for new emails he gets when out.

    Does the Mail app in RT have the ability to "save message on server" for POP3 or should I try to see if I can get him setup as IMAP?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the tip...funny how the email app teases you with POP and you select it and it doesn't work. I am in a big bind here now unless someone makes a POP3 email client for Windows RT. I tried adding his account via Outlook.com and while it could send, it would never receive. So I tried to remove and re-add it and I am stuck with: "It looks like you already added this account. If you recently deleted the account and are trying to add it again, please try again later".

    You can have your POP email account messages forwarded to an imap account such as gmail.

    You can also set up a POP email in Outlook.com and sync said Outlook email to the mail app.

    Outlook.com webpage is also very fast on the RT. You can use it to send from an account that is set up as a send/receive address folder.
