Email software installs a POP3 and an IMAP version of the same account

New Poster

Email software installs a POP3 and an IMAP version of the same account

I just set up eM Client as my email handler and it created a POP3 version and an IMAP version of my single account.  The same thing happened when I installed Windows Live Mail from Windows Essentials 2012, previously.

1.  Why did this happen and 2. should I simply delete one - I assume the POP3?

I would delete POP.
