I have used send mail functions successfully. Now I want to receive email from a POP3 server. Am I using the wrong search terms, or is this not possible?

POP3 was never implemented for this.
[SQL Remote has some POP3 as did MobiLink (the latter was removed in version 17) but it was not ever a feature of xp_startsmtp]

You will need to write a static Java method to do that.
I have successfully dropped the latest JavaMail classes in a 12.0.1 database to do STARTSSL smtp support (essentially wrote a replacement for xp_sendmail() - it was less than 200 lines of code). You just have to write a class with a static method to do it and wrap it in an external function call.
