Windows 7: POP3 or IMAP through godaddy?

POP3 or IMAP through godaddy?

Ok I dont really understand the differences between the two.

I do have an unlimited IMAP account with 10 emails for my websites through godaddy.

I also have the emails set up on my home computer, iphone & also their online website/server for their email system.

The way it is set up now, IMAP, I have to delete the same email 3 times... that seems cumbersome.

I really prefer to only delete it once.

Is this possible with POP3?

Are there any disadvantages of POP3 compared to IMAP?
