What's up with POP3?

Title slide bg wide

A few of you have asked when Contactually will be able to support POP3 email accounts (e.g., Hotmail), and the short answer is "not yet." The long answer is that POP3 is a somewhat dated protocol and with the way that it stores email on the servers, it renders our service virtually useless. We've been working on getting a way to get POP3 to play nicely with Contactually since day one, but our workarounds haven't fully solved that issue.

Rest assured, we're still working on it, and it'll be out as soon as we get it fully working! But in the meantime, we do support IMAP accounts as well as Exchange.
