    IMAP is the latest protocol used to retrieve messages from a server. By using this, you can access your full email history using any other device.

    POP, on the other hand, is an older model of communication. It downloads messages and deletes them from the server. What is great about this protocol is that you do not consume that much online disk space.

    By default, the iPhone or iPad will try to set up all connections with SSL enabled. If you do not use the correct SSL host name, you may receive an error.

    If you see an error that says Cannot connect using SSL, select Yes. This will force the phone to use the non-SSL settings.
