POP is the older method of transferring emailmessages, and works by downloading new messages to your client and then deleting themfrom the server. IMAP was designed to allow you to check email from multiple devices, asmessages and organization are synced between all of the clients you use.[1]There is really no practical reason to use POP if IMAP is available. IMAP is morestable, more secure, and allows you to check your email from your computer,phone, and laptop without losing any messages.Most email services allow you to use IMAP, though some may charge for it. Gmail,Yahoo!, Outlook.com (Hotmail), AOL, and most service providers allow for IMAP.2Configure your service for IMAP (Gmail).Most email services allow you to accessthe IMAP functions without making any changes.
