What is the difference between POP and IMAP?
Both are mail protocols, or methods or reaching your emails.
- POP: Messages are downloaded locally to your computer.
- IMAP: Synchronization between the server and your mail client. Messages remain on the server. It’s like importing the webmail in the interface of your choice.
