Additional Key Points to Remember

Aside from the GoDaddy email settings mentioned above, it is also important to take note of the following information.

💡 Note: Your email plan does not support IMAP if you can only see a POP3 incoming server.

In this case, you may change the account type in your mail client or set up the account using IMAP to change your mail settings from POP to IMAP. Some clients, such as Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013, and Outlook 2016, do not allow changing the account type. Thus, you must configure the account with your incoming and outgoing servers to use IMAP with these clients.

Additionally, you will not lose your past email data if you go from POP to IMAP.

💡 Note: However, IMAP users should be aware that the folder names on GoDaddy's servers may not match those on the IMAP client they are configuring. For folders to sync correctly, you might need to map them. Thus, it gets advised that you read up on how to map your files for your particular client properly.

POP vs. IMAP Email Servers: How To Choose

The email has gone to the top of the list of most often used communication media, whether for personal or professional reasons. However, words like POP and IMAP in email terminology might be confusing.

In the early days of the internet, the Post Office Protocol (POP) was the most commonly used email protocol. After downloading your message from the server, you delete it from the server using POP. Reading messages on any device without affecting the server is possible with POP.

On the other hand, the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) allows you to access your emails from several devices by storing them on the server. If you use IMAP instead of POP, you will always have access to your email on any device.

Regarding email, IMAP and POP are the two most popular options. POP may still be useful for those who do not always have access to a reliable internet connection. IMAP is the way to go if you frequently switch between a laptop, phone, and tablet during the day and are constantly connected to a reliable, fast network.

In the end, most email users choose IMAP above any other protocol.
