Things To Know
There are two types of connections to mail server when setting up a device, POP3 and IMAP. POP3 downloads email to email client and wants to remove it from server after checking. IMAP doesn’t download email, rather is connects your email client to the mail server and shows you the mail. It’s greatest benefit is when you have multiple devices that you check email on, using IMAP on all devices syncs them up so handling/deleting/sorting email only happens once. With POP3, you have to delete the same junk email on all the email clients, time consuming.
Now with that understanding, POP3 and IMAP do not get along. POP3 wants to delete the email on the mail server every time it checks mail and IMAP needs to store all the email on the mail server. So if you install email on your Apple device with our quick tool, make sure your other devices use IMAP as well or change the POP3 settings so mail stays on the server.
For example, above is More Settings window from Outlook. In the Advanced Tab you will see the delivery section. Check to leave mail on the server and if you want, set to remove after 14 days. This will ensure your Apple device email client using IMAP, has the last 14 days worth of email. Anything older will be downloaded and stored on your POP3 email client.
