Can I set sub-account as pop3

I have longstanding main account and 2 sub-accounts as pop3 accounts.  Today I tried to set up a new sub-account that turned out to be imap.  Is it possible to set up as pop3 or am I stuck with imap from now on?

Re: Can I set sub-account as pop3

It's been a while since I've done it, but if I remember correctly you have to create the subaccount and then go back in and enable POP access for that subaccount.

First you have to create the sub account and once you do that you can create POP3

It turned out the problem was with Apple's Mail client. It will only set up imap accounts. There is an undocumented workaround (option+continue) during setup.
