POP or POP3 refers to Post Office Protocol, it is one of the two most popular ways of receiving emails. Most ISPs promote POP3 as requires less resource because it downloads the message from the server and stores in the local device.

IMAP refers to Internet Message Access Protocol, it’s the second way of receiving email messages. It is less popular than POP3 but it provides the best user experience.
