IMAP stands for Internet Message Access Protocol. IMAP is a method of accessing electronic mail on a mail server. IMAP offers several advantages over POP3 - including the ability to manage email in folders on and off the email server.
We include a free IMAP server with every account. The IMAP server gives you the ability to use advanced email clients such as Outlook or Netscape Mail that support the advanced features of the IMAP protocol. In addition, you can use IMAP web based clients like SquirrelMail or Horde. (We include both; Horde IMP and SquirrelMail with every web hosting account.)
Note: Ensure that you have indent enabled and that you/your ISP do not block it. Port 143 must be open if you have a firewall.
