This section applies to Pop users that have email addresses that end in @state.mn.us. Other users have their own section.

You may access your messages using your favorite pop client (Outlook, Outlook Express, Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape, Eudora, Pine, ...) or from any web browser. Access - for both reading mail and sending messages - is available from anywhere on the Internet.

You may access your messages using your favorite pop client (Outlook, Outlook Express, Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape, Eudora, Pine, ...) or from any web browser. Access - for both reading mail and sending messages - is available from anywhere on the Internet.

The service also includes individual address books and individual calendars.

Access can be by any of these protocols:

  • POP3 (TCP port 110),
  • IMAP protocol (TCP port 143),
  • POP3 using SSL (TCP port 995), or
  • IMAP using SSL (TCP port 993)

If you use either of the SSL protocols, you will want to download a copy of our root certificate. This certificate is available from our information page.

All messages sent from the Internet to pop accounts use our Anti-Spam/Anti-Virus service. Contact us at Service.Desk@state.mn.us if you need settings changed. Attachment filtering also applies.
