Email Management

POP3 Email

POP3
Post Office Protocol

This is usually the standard and default mailbox that you will be provided with. A standard POP3 mailbox allows you to send and receive emails in the traditional fashion.

Emails you receive sit on a server waiting for you to download them to your computer. When you download them they are MOVED from the server and are then just available on your local computer. Like the Post Office delivering a letter, hence the name.

IMAP Email

IMAP
Internet Message Access Protocol

If you are using a mobile device to pickup your email, we strongly suggest that you use an IMAP mailbox. This is the best solution if you are not sat at your desk on most days and want the flexibility of having your email available wherever you are.

IMAP mailboxes allow for multiple devices to log into the same account at the same time, so that you can see all of your emails wherever you are. Your emails live on a server so you just login to the server to see your emails.

Microsoft Exchange
eMail, Calendar and Contacts Software

With Microsoft Exchange as the mail server and Microsoft Outlook as your client, you can do more than send and receive email - you can share calendars, tasks, folders, documents and contacts. Outlook is available for your desktop, browser, and mobile device so you're always connected, whether you're in the office, traveling, or working from home.

Since you always connect to the same Exchange server, your inbox stays SYNCHRONISED, no matter which Outlook client you're using.
