If your company has a “catch-all” mailbox for customer service reps which needs to be accessed by several people OR If you have satellite offices where employees will be rotating through as needed, you will face problems if the POP server email gets downloaded to a local hard disk and is no longer available on the server.
POP or Post Office Protocol enables simple mailbox management from download to delete operations.
POP usually retains the email from remote server once downloading it on your computer. If you are using multiple devices like desktop/ laptop/ tablet/ phone, you must delete or file the same email on every device with no indication of which of which mails are unread or deleted or flagged or filed. Managing or replicating files on the other device therefore becomes a concern. If a large number of messages are stored on remote servers, downloading becomes a very slow affair. Also, encryption of the messages needs to be requested. Once you have retrieved your emails, you are disconnected from the server.
IMAP is best in scenarios where a lot of email will be coming through the servers to multiple computers, or in situations where the email accounts will need to be accessed from multiple locations. If you’re setting up a “virtual office” where you’ll have employees throughout the country, IMAP is the way to go.
IMAP or Internet Message Access Protocol is a two-way internet protocol that allows for storing emails on remote servers and synchronizing the emails among multiple devices – something extremely convenient in the present times when most people use a minimum of a laptop and a smartphone. Any changes or actions around the emails are brought simultaneously across all the devices. IMAP allows for online and offline modes of operation. It also enables multiple users to manage the same mailbox. Emails on the server are stored until the user explicitly deletes them.
Through IMAP you can now enjoy a robust email protocol (something unachievable by POP):
. Rs.599/- per annum with 2GB space for each user/ each email id
. Rs.999/- per annum with unlimited space* for each user/ each email id
(*Conditions apply for unlimited space)
