Internet Message Access Protocol

Last night was my first experience utilized IMAP. Most email clients utilize Post Office Protocol (POP)

Last night I set up Fastmail with the Apple mail client utlizing IMAP.

IMAP advantages:

  1. Faster response time because not all of the message is downloaded
  2. The use of an email client on a main workstation (actually multiple clients are supported!) while still enabling web access from many workstations
