What’s the difference between IMAP and POP email?

Solution

eNom provides email services via our POP Pack.

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.

The main difference between IMAP and POP is whether you want want to download your email from the server. If you are looking to use your webmail with only one computer or email client, it is best to use a POP account.

However, if you are looking to use your email address with a few different computers or clients and want to retain folders, read/unread status, etc between them it is best to use an IMAP account.
