Yes You can do this - Notes is a POP3 Client (amongst other things!).

If you do a search in Help from your version of Notes, you will see some entries on this - but to summarise here is a brief extract:

Note: - When this refers to creating a POP3 mail account - this is seting up connection, not completely recreating

"When you run Notes for the first time, you can choose to have Notes automatically create a POP3 and SMTP mail accounts.  To manually create a POP or SMTP account, you need to follow the steps for creating Internet accounts.
After you have created accounts for POP3 and SMTP, and set up a location document to specify a mail file, you can send and receive mail. Note that POP mail can also be retrieved to a server-based mail file.
  1.     Select a location from which you can access your POP3 and SMTP accounts.
  2.     Open the Replication page.
  3.     Click Start.
  4.     Notes receives mail from the Internet server to the database specified in the "Mail file" field of the current location document. Notes will also send any outgoing mail waiting in the SMTP.BOX.

To make changes to your POP and SMTP account accounts:
  5.     Click File - Mobile - Locations
  6.     Under Advanced, click Accounts.
  7.     Select the account you would like to edit and click Edit Account on the action bar.
  8.     Most changes can be made in the Advanced tab.
When you set up a POP account, you can specify whether you want to leave your e-mail on the Internet server. The default is Yes."

If you have already installed Notes - think you need to create an Internet Account within your Name & Address Book. Access to this is obviously location dependent. Again this is all detailed in the normal Notes Client help.

Let me know if you need any other help - hope this has been of assistance.
