What should you know about IMAP?

The IMAP protocol shows you the emails you have on the server but does not store them on the mobile device.

If you want to read your emails from different computers, or devices (or both) and have them available from any Internet connection through the browser or from the App, IMAP is the protocol you should use.

You can check the messages from your Outlook, Live Mail, Office 365 mail client or any device such as tablets or phones.

If you receive large attachments and / or your Hosting space is full and you are interested in downloading the messages to free up space for your hosting account, you must use the POP3 protocol. (Not available in the Microsoft Outlook App).

With the IMAP protocol you can read emails offline but it is necessary to activate this option in the email program (if it allows it), otherwise you will need to connect to the Internet.
