Welcome to the email set up guide…

……………………………………………………..

Email set up and security settings.

Your email account can be set up as either  POP3 (for Microsoft Outlook etc) or iMap if you prefer to manage a more complex account.

In both cases it should be set up to remove the emails from the server after a set amount of days (eg 7 to 10 days). 

NOTE; Your Email ‘in box’ on the server will FILL UP and stop receiving emails if you leave them on the server.

With POP3 deleting from the server does not affect your emails already downloaded and stored on your PC via outlook. With IMAP it will.

Should I choose POP or IMAP?

It’s up to you! Below are the main differences between the two.

If you’re not sure what to choose, go with POP. It’s widely used and suitable for most peoples needs.

POP:- Everything sent to your email address is stored on our mail system until you connect and download it with your email program.

As messages are downloaded to your computer, they are removed from our mail system. After downloading, messages are stored on your computer until you delete them.

With POP, your messages are kept in one place and you can read messages (that you’ve already downloaded) when you’re not connected to the Internet.

IMAP:- Everything sent to your email address is stored on our mail system until you delete it. For this reason, IMAP is better if you need check your mail from other computers or devices.

Any changes made to your messages (moving them between folders, marking them as read, deleting, etc) will be seen immediately on every computer or device that you check your email with.

As your messages are kept on our mail system, you’ll need to be connected to the Internet to read them.
