    Exchange is, as far as you're concerned, the mail sever.
    In terms of sending mail from your samsung, It won't work with a pop3 mail setup. You'll need to set up mail on something like outlook or outlook express on your computer, which isn't a pop3 account.
    Active sync is basically software that syncs your contacts etc from your computer to/from a pda/blackberry etc.

    *sorry my brain is a bit fuzzy this evening so might not be explaining very well!

    activesync is a sync problem for mostly windowsmobile devices. on vista, thr windows mobile device centre replaces activesync, but its the same tech, hence a lot of activesync mentions!

    exchange is mail server software, and you dont need to worry about it in all probability.

    Your phone will almost certainly handle pop3 separately 'on-device' - not part of activesync.
