If you would like to learn more about the differences between POP and IMAP, please see the help topic, "POP vs. IMAP."
For increased security, we recommend that you use our secure (SSL) servers, as detailed below. Note: If your internal system configurations require non-SSL ports, please see the "Email Server Settings" page for our full list of available servers and ports.
