There are 2 types of incoming mail servers you can use for setting up email accounts with email clients and mobile devices- IMAP and POP3. Learn the difference between IMAP and POP3 by reading the information below.

IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is highly recommended if you want to access your emails in multiple devices like your personal computer and mobile device. IMAP syncs all emails within the server when sync option is tapped in the device. And when the devices are not available, you can access the emails via Webmail.

POP3 (Post Office Protocol 3) downloads and saves the emails from the server and are deleted in the server once downloaded which means emails will no longer be available when accessed via Webmail. This is mostly useful when you only want to access your emails in one device.
