Did you know?
IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol)
IMAP is not an email program in itself. Just like POP, it is a protocol by which you can read email. IMAP allows you to view your email from more than one place. E.g. from your desktop computer at work and from your laptop at home and from abroad and from your mobile device - multiple locations.
To use IMAP effectively, you need to make sure that each program on each computer that you use to view your Gibtelecom email account is set up to use IMAP.
Watch your quota!
With IMAP all of your email is stored on the Gibtelecom Mail Store space which has a quota limit (Default 100mb). If you run out of space any emails sent to you will bounce back to the sender. You can check your incoming mailsize and quota online, via the webmail service.
POP3 (Post Office Protocol Version3)
POP3 is suitable if you have no need to check your email in multiple locations. If you only ever check your Gibtelecom emails on your computer at home, for example, then POP is fine for this purpose.
