POP vs. IMAP Email Servers: How To Choose

Both POP and IMAP protocols retrieve emails from an email server so that you can read them on your device. These systems work with a desktop client application like Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail, Spark, or something similar to connect to your mailbox.

POP was created for a simpler time when you only required one device to access your mailbox. Because constant internet access was not widespread, POP made sense for dial-up connections where you got online, did your work, and then disconnected.

💡 Note: Although POP offers some advantages in certain contexts, it is now essentially obsolete. Even if you leave a copy of the message on the server, it shouldn't get used for checking emails from numerous devices; thus, you can run into significant issues.

IMAP got established to provide access to emails saved on a remote server from anywhere in the world. The concept is to let many clients manage the same inbox, which is how most people use email nowadays. Because the emails and folder structure get saved on the server, you will see the same emails and folder structure whether you log in from your home or work computer. Moreover, you will not have to worry about misleading duplicated inboxes because your changes immediately sync to the server.

Finally, IMAP is better if you want to access your mailbox from various devices, such as a work computer and a smartphone; POP3 is better if you have one device and many emails.

In the end, IMAP is still the protocol of choice for the vast majority of people.
