IMAP or POP

IMAP

When you check your email with an IMAP connection, you are accessing and managing your email directly from the email server.

Access: Since the emails are stored on the email server, you can access and manage your email and email folders from multiple computers or mobile devices.

Storage: If you have limited online storage space, you may need to delete some emails periodically to avoid exceeding your storage capacity.

Backup: The server is backed up for disaster recovery only. You should implement an effective backup system for your computer, in case you need to retrieve lost or deleted emails.

Internet Connection: If you do not have an Internet connection, you cannot access your email.

POP

When you check your email with a POP connection, new email messages are downloaded to your computer and are then deleted from the email server.

Access: Since your email is stored on your computer, you must be at your computer to access your email.

Storage: You don’t need to worry about running out of online storage space. Since you’re downloading your emails to your computer, you can keep as many emails as your computer can store.

Backup: You should implement an effective backup system for your computer, in case you need to retrieve lost or deleted emails.

Internet Connection: You will need an Internet connection to download email, but you can view your downloaded email offline (i.e., without an Internet connection).

What our clients say

  • Throughout the process of redesigning and rebuilding our website, Chris at Original Image has been a fantastic partner to work with.
    He’s responsive, creative with finding solutions to our design and functionality challenges, open and honest about what will and won’t work (and why), and he’s an all round nice guy.
    Chris took on not only a development role, but also a consultant role and provided valuable advice when it came to turning what we had on paper into a reality.
    The changes we made based on his input have meant visitors to our website will get a seamless and consistent experience, regardless of whether they view on a desktop or a mobile.
    We’ve really enjoyed working with Chris and we would certainly recommend Original Image to others.

  • Chris is our go-to website specialist. No one has come close to the professionalism and service we have received.
    The work he has completed has always had a seamless quality from 'concept to going live’ - and we don’t get surprises with budget.

    The real benefit has been using Original Image to host our client’s sites too - Chris makes any amends in lightning fast time and if it is a simple change - the back end CMS is easy to use.
