Take a look at this article about Thunderbird email.

http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=2552303

Thunderbird supports POP and can be installed to work from the Windows 8 Desktop.

Also Office 2010 will work in Windows 8 and Outlook 2010 supports POP and so should in Windows 8.

If you had asked: is it possible to setup pop emailing using the builtin mail app, the answer would be "no". Setting up another mail client that supports pop is of course possible, just like with previous versions of windows.

It's a Surface Tablet, I assume Office  2010 would be ok to install.

As long as it is a regular processor, Office should install. But I think the Surface is an ARM processor. Please check this. You need a special version of Office for ARM processors.

Surface comes in two flavors, RT and "normal" windows 8.

Check your version of Windows. This article below says Office 2013 is being designed to also work on the Surface.

...yes, that's why I posted the link. It works on all surface versions, not only on "regular" processors.

I cannot find anything conclusive about this. You would have to try. Windows RT is a different operating system and x86 Thunderbird may not work. We did not know about the operating system when we suggested Thunderbird.
