Outlook 2010 Difference between IMAP and POP3 ??
I'm now configuring Outlook 2010.
Things like email I've never really paid much attention to since on my machines they always seem to "just work" (from OE==>OUTLOOK) and EVOLUTION on Linux.
However setting up an account on Outlook 2010 I've got a choice between IMAP or POP3. The ISP I'm using supplies both so what should I choose here.
I rang the ISP but got fed up with the endless dreary "Press X for options a.b.c.d", then another load of automated messages with another set of options again before probably being connected to some call centre in India / Bangladesh or wherever .
(If I was ever dictator of the planet my first act on day one would be to OUTLAW all these automated telephone systems and have HUMANS answering them --it would create loads of jobs too ).
So what should I choose. In the past I think POP3 was always the default and never given it a thought but I've seen IMAP mentioned a lot recently.
