Send and receive

The SMTP server is the server allowing you to send e-mails.
The IMAP and POP servers are the servers allowing you to receive your e-mails in two different ways. By configuring your mail client, you will need to choose one of them, but not both.

The POP enables you to retrieve a copy of your e-mails in the mail client while deleting or not them on the server. You deal with your e-mails partly offline and save data exchange with the server. This protocol is interesting if you have a limited connection or if you do not want to keep your e-mails on the server. Furthermore, the POP retrieves your e-mails only from the inbox folder. You should therefore occasionally check your spam folder in the webmail or disable your filters (including the antispam) and use that or those of your mail client instead.

The IMAP deals directly with the server. Any operation will be reflected immediately if you are online, either the next connection if you are offline. Inbox beyond, for your convenience, if you software allows, you can use the same folders (drafts, sent, trash…) as the webmail.
