  • POP3 over VPN or RPC over HTTP

    POP3 over VPN or RPC over HTTP. RPC over HTTP was mildly painful to get working and I've never done POP over VPN. The server has a 100Mbps connecction, the user, 1.5Mpbs.

    Thanks for your opinion.

    RPC over HTTP can be finicky to setup but is a much better solution. POP3 should be consigned to the bin these days, IMAP is a much better option but still not nearly as good as full blown Outlook which you get with RPC over HTTP.

      This site has some excellent articles on RPC over HTT(S) and how to get it working. More articles down the bottom of the linked page. http://www.petri.com/configure_rpc_o...gle_server.htm

        I would recommend not even looking at the POP "solution". RPC/HTTPS is definitely the way to go.

            Cool. I successfully set it up on one PC, thanks to the tutorials, but the next PC just won't work. Persistence is what I need.
