Don’t know what POP3 or IMAP are or aren’t sure which one to choose to access your emails?

Watch our 123-reg video to find out everything you need to know about POP3 and IMAP, including the differences between the two protocols. This will help you decide which one to use, depending on your lifestyle and how you want to access your emails.
POP3 (Post Office Protocol) and IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) are protocols used to connect your mailbox server to an email client. This allows you to send and receive your email.
IMAP is best if you want to access your emails from multiple locations, clients and devices as it doesn’t require downloading your email client. POP3, on the other hand, allows you to download all of your email to one location managed by you.
