POP3 E-mail (Post Office Protocol)

POP3 is a type of email that transfers messages directly onto your computer at home or work.  After you download your email, messages are erased from Lansford.US mail server and saved on your local computer.  Many email clients, such as Outlook Express, can be used with POP3. 

POP3 email typically downloads messages faster than IMAP email, because the mail server doesn't have to check as many messages.


IMAP4 E-mail (Internet Message Access Protocol)

It is a method of accessing electronic mail or bulletin board messages that are kept on a mail server. In other words, it permits a "client" email program to access remote message stores as if they were local. For example, email stored on an IMAP server can be manipulated from a desktop computer at home, a workstation at the office, and a notebook computer while traveling, without the need to transfer messages or files back and forth between these computers.

IMAP's ability to access messages (both new and saved) from more than one computer has become extremely important as reliance on electronic messaging and use of multiple computers increase, but this functionality cannot be taken for granted: the widely used Post Office Protocol (POP) works best when one has only a single computer, since it was designed to support "offline" message access, wherein messages are downloaded and then deleted from the mail server. This mode of access is not compatible with access from multiple computers since it tends to sprinkle messages across all of the computers used for mail access. Thus, unless all of those machines share a common file system, the offline mode of access that POP was designed to support effectively ties the user to one computer for message storage and manipulation.
