Unfortunately, no. The Mail app present in Microsoft Windows 8 only supports IMAP and EAS protocols for exchanging data with email servers. If you don’t want to use these protocols and, for various reasons, want to stick with your POP3-based email account, you will have to search for an alternative email program, such as Mozzila’s free Thunderbird applications.
