Do you have an email address that you want to setup on an e-mail client like Outlook or in your newly bought mobile device like iPhone or Blackberry? And when you are about to do this you are asked to choose if you want to setup your email account via POP3 or IMAP? and you don't know what to choose? This tip will help know more about this two types of setting that are commonly used for email clients and mobile devices that supports messaging.

First of all let's talk about POP3, this stands for Post Office Protocol version 3. Yes, this is the latest version of this protocol. We won't really get too technical in this tip. I will just give you ideas on how this will work to better understand which one to choose between POP3 and IMAP. Now a days, if someone says "I POP my mails from the server" he/she is saying that he used POP3 to download mails from the server. POP3 was initially created for users who does not have a permanent access to the Internet, like dial-up. POP3 will download all of your mails from the server, delete the messages from the server, and close the connection. All of the message downloaded will all be store in inbox and even if the user is off line, the user can still check the downloaded messages without getting online.

**The server that we are talking about here is what we also call as web mail.

Though POP3 deletes all downloaded mails from the server (web mail). Most e-mail clients will give you an option to leave a copy of the message on the server. This will make sure that even if you "pop" you mails, once you log back in to your web mail the same messages are still in there. To make it short and simple POP3 will only download all of the message and put in to the inbox of your e-mail client or mobile devices.

IMAP or Internet Message Access Protocol. This protocol almost works the same as POP3. The only difference is that it will not download all messages from the server in to your inbox. IMAP is also called the "mirror" for your e-mail client and the server. What you will have on the server (web mail) will be available on the client or mobile device. This idea applies to this example. Let's say you have sorted your e-mails on your web mail, you created folders to categorize the messages that is getting to your inbox. Once you setup IMAP in a e-mail client or mobile device you will see the folders and you will also have an option on your e-mail client and mobile device to subscribe to these folders that you have on the web mail.

This is pretty much having the same format from the server to your e-mail client or mobile device. This will also save you from the agony of sorting your mails since they will show up on your e-mail client or mobile device same as how they are set on the server. Another thing that is not found in POP3 is the way messages will be removed the server. Once the user using IMAP deletes a message, it will not be immediately get deleted from the server unless the user explicitly delete them, this is done by using the purge option.

I hope this enlightened you a bit to choose between the two.

E-Mail on your PC and Mac!

An Introduction to Email Clients and Their Use at Home

A lot of us use an email client such as Outlook, Lotus Notes, or something similar at work. But many people don't realize there are programs (often for free) out there for you to use to catalog all of your email in the same manner right at home. You can have multiple email accounts, contact lists, a calendar, and a cache of other fun features which vary with each program. I will briefly touch on some of the similarities and differences between several of the clients. First, though, I will fill in those who don't know what the heck I am talking about so we are all on the same page.
So, introducing: The E-Mail Client! Email clients are programs locally installed on your computer that synchronizes with your email provider to deliver your email right to your PC or Mac without the need of navigating to their website and logging in. Often the common free providers like Hotmail, AOL, Yahoo, and Mac are auto-configured so you don't have to have information like POP, SMTP, and authentication types. These companies have made great efforts to streamline this process and make it as easy for the users as possible so that they can really enjoy their email. For example, Windows Vista users found a feature called Windows Mail that came for free on the OS. This is an email client! It prompts you for your name, username and password and then actually searches based on that information through its database to see if it can auto-configure your email. Mozilla Thunderbird does this as well. A newer and up and coming email client I have favored for a long time is Windows Live Mail. WLM is an upgrade to the Windows Mail that has a much more Outlook-like feel to it with a friendlier interface. It has your contact lists, calendar, and also integrates really well with your browser, Office applications, and graphics editing software. I really enjoy the cross compatibility and functionality this program provides. The next section will go more in depth into these programs.

Windows Mail


Windows Mail is a email client included with Windows Vista. Right off the bat, users can see that the client has been changed to better fit the look and feel of Vista. Also many features of MS Outlook 2003 such as the right reading pane. There are capable junk mail filters as well as a phishing filter, which helps protect unsuspecting users from websites and email that has been deemed dangerous. Windows Mail does not support HTTP clients such as AOL, Yahoo, and Google. Windows Live Mail or Mozilla Thunderbird would be a better option for these users . Lastly, the ability to use the spellchecking dictionaries of MS Office (when installed) has been removed. Windows Mail supports only a limited number of languages, listed below.
* English
* French
* German
* Spanish

Mozilla Thunderbird


Mozilla Thunderbird is a great email client that I am currently testing. It contains such new features as tabs, easier installation of add-ons, and better search functionality. One of the best features for wary users is the easier account creation by using the port auto detection for incoming and outgoing SMTP/POP Connections. This will be huge for users who would like to use this technology but don't want to be bothered with the technical programming. Thunderbird aims to be a simple e-mail, newsgroup and news feed client. Out of the box, Thunderbird does not come with a lot of calendar, contact lists, and other such functionality, but such things are available via extensions you can download from Mozilla. Thunderbird can manage multiple e-mail, newsgroup and news feed accounts and supports multiple identities within accounts. Features like quick search, saved search folders ("virtual folders"), advanced message filtering, message grouping, and labels help manage and find messages. On Linux-based systems, system mail (movemail) accounts are supported. Thunderbird runs on a wide variety of platforms. Releases available on the primary distribution site support the following operating systems:
* Windows
* Linux
* Mac OS X
* OS/2 [9]
* eComStation
* OpenSolaris

Thunderbird provides enterprise and government-grade security features such as SSL/TLS connections to IMAP and SMTP servers. It also offers native support for S/MIME secure email (digital signing and message encryption using certificates). Any of these security features can take advantage of smartcards with the installation of additional extensions.

Windows Live Mail


Windows Live Mail has all of the features of Windows Mail along with some new tricks of its own! Support for Web-based e-mail accounts including Windows Live Hotmail, Gmail/Google Mail, and Yahoo! Mail Plus being the biggest addition. It uses the multi-line message list like Outlook and you can use Emoticons and similar features. Live Mail also includes spell check. One of the best features, in my opinion, is that the different email accounts have different folders so there is easy definition and organization between accounts and their corresponding mail. There is also great improvement in the editing area, where you can add pictures into the message as well as touch it up. There are new stationary features and similar other functionality found in MS Word. Home run with this client, in this writers opinion.
