However, since it's limited in its ability to queue messages at the receiving end, it's usually used with one of two other protocols, POP3 or IMAP, that let the user save messages in a server mailbox and download them periodically from the server. Users typically use a program that uses SMTP for sending e-mail and either POP3 or IMAP for receiving messages that have been received for them at their local server.
POP (Post Office Protocol) is a standard mail server commonly used on the Internet. It provides a message store that holds incoming e-mail until users log on and download it.

It's called a client because e-mail systems are based on a client-server architecture. Mail is sent from many clients to a central server, which re-routes the mail to its intended destination.
An email alias is simply a mail forwarding function. An email alias does NOT have its own storage space and mail sent to an alias must be routed to an actual email address. This destination address can either be under the same domain name, or it can be a completely separate email account.
