The difference between IMAP and POP email?

Modified on Wed, 05 Jan 2022 at 02:03 PM

The key difference is where your emails are stored. With POP your emails are downloaded to your device and deleted from the server (unless you change the default settings). With IMAP, emails “reside” on the server and you can easily read and interact with emails from multiple devices.

You can use IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) or POP (Post Office Protocol) email with our email, at the same time as they are always available.
