new IMAP email

new IMAP email

Do I need to select IMAP or POP if using only a desktop and 1 laptop for all my user email names?

 

How do I move emails I want to save into existing folders?  Or do I have to create all new?

Re: new IMAP email

If you have only pne computer POP3 is still a viable option for you.  However, if you have the account enabled on more than one computer or other device, IMAP is the recommended protocol, since it syncs everything from one to the other.  You should find this of interest------------------------

When you use IMAP, it will copy any folders it sees on the server.
