i am getting a new computer with windows 7. i have got office 2010 to load on the new machine. i have read that outlook 2010 just automatically defaults to IMAP and for our own preferences we preferr pop3. the same thing seems to be the case with thunderbird. is there a way to force pop3 on these two mail clients?

Kenbarber,

I use Office 2010 in my office with POP3. It will try to find the settings automatically, but you are given the option to configure it manually. On the screen in which it offers to automatically configure the settings, look in the lower left corner. You should be given the option for manual configuration, and you can set it up how you wish. If you have issues, post back here and we'll help you.

I'm searching from my phone, so I can't follow the links as easily, but I have no reason to believe it can't. POP3 has been a standard means of downloading email for a long time; I find it difficult to believe they'd do away with it like that.
