POP3 or IMAP?

There are plenty of articles on the internet about the difference, but as a quick summary (some details are skipped to keep it simple!);

POP3 - the e-mail is downloaded from the server and saved on your computer. This means that if you connect with multiple devices (desktop computer, phone, ipad etc) then you will not see all the mail as once it is downloaded, it is no longer available

The benefit of this is that you do not fill up your mailbox with old mail. Also, you can still access downloaded mail even if you do not have an internet connection

IMAP - Mail is saved on the server and can be accessed from any device. You must be connected to the internet to use it. This is handy if you use lots of devices and want to see all your mail history from any of them. Your mailbox will usually need more space as all your mail is held on the server.

Best compromise for many people - set up your main computer with a POP3 account so mail is downloaded to your computer. When you are away from your computer, then you can access any new mail with your phone/ipad using IMAP. You will not be able to see old mail that has already been downloaded to your computer, but you will be able to see any new mail that has come in since you last connected with your computer. The new mail will still be on the server after you looked on your phone (assuming you don't delete it!) when you get back to your computer.
