Email account settings: IMAP or POP3

If you've ever tried to set up your phone, tablet or computer to get your email then you've no doubt encountered these two IMAP and POP3. Maybe you already know what they mean, but in case you don't here's a quick explanation: 

POP3:  Downloads the message off the email server directly to your phone, tablet or computer and, usually, doesn't leave a copy of it on the server.  If you're getting mail on more than one device, this is not for you!

IMAP:  Downloads the message off the email server directly to your phone, tablet or computer and leaves the message on the email server. IMAP is best when you'd like to see email messages from webmail, outlook and other devices.
