2012: Changing from POP to IMAP
October 4th, 2011 | Posted by Pin

Thanks to Steve Jobs of Apple Inc., we now have even more i-devices, like the iPad, iPhone and Macbook to fill our already busy lives. Now, we can all have access to emails, even when we’re cycling in the middle of the woods of Fraser’s Hill.

But, have you ever wished that you could send an email from your iPhone and have it shown directly in your Outlook? Or, would you like to mark a message as read in your Mac’s Mail and have it automatically marked as read in your Android as well? How about fine-tuning your email tools to boost your email managing efficiency, like AMG adding HorsePower to the Mercedes-Benz?

We understand your needs and plan to come up with a guide, but since each email user is different, we think it would be better if we could spend some time with you to review each case and propose an improvement. With such advancements in email technology, the old POP3 way to access your email has become obsolete, and it has now been replaced with smarter methods where you can manage all emails in all devices while keeping everything you’ve done in sync.

This exercise may take a couple of weeks, so let’s not waste time and kick start it now!

1. Switching to IMAP
2. Fine-tuning email tools
3. 10 bad email habits

Issues with POP

1. Outlook loads slowly after you have years of messages downloaded to your computer.

2. Risk of losing your computer so as the messages in those Outlook. Reinstallation of OS become a tedious process.

3. Unable to swicth to any other email client such as Mail in Mac, or Outlook Express in Windows XP.

4. Outlook Express has a file size limit of 2GB. The file has all the messages you have downloaded from the mail server, via POP. See the problem?

I still prefer gmail interface than outlook express. I tried thunderbird to but for me it is good only when we want to synchronize more than one email address in a single interface
