About Electronic Mail

Do you know the difference between the IMAP and POP mail protocols?
Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) allows users to keep messages on the server, so you can continue to access them from any location until you delete them.
Post Office Protocol (POP) allows the client to download messages one at a time and only delete them from the server after they have been successfully saved on local storage, so you can access them offline.
