Pop3 server on Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter

I am migrating from windows server 2003 to Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter edition.
On my 2003 server I was using POP3 mail server. Now it appears that Server 2012 doesn't support POP3. Is this true and if so what are my options? I have been trying to configure 2012 for exchange server but I can't seem to figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Windows 2012 server does not have build in POP3 and SMTP service as windows 2003 server did.

One option is to use exchange server, which requires you to buy all needed licenses. This is a really full featured product which has certain system requirements.
Installation procedure:

Or you can use some of free POP3/SMTP programs like:

It really depends on your needs.

That is a little difficult to say. I'm not familiar with it. Never used.
But on the homepage they are saying: "It's used by Internet service providers, companies, governments, schools and enthusiasts in all parts of the world."
And being a small simple program also attack surface is smaller.
