Making sure your email gets through!


Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP4) allows you to access your email remotely using client software like Outlook, Thunderbird, Android / iPhone mail, etc. and supports both online and offline modes.

In general, client software using IMAP leaves the email messages on the Farbyte cloud, so you can access it from anywhere using different devices. Each device may cache local copies for working in offline mode.

This allows you to access your email from anywhere that has an internet connection & ensures your email is secure in the Farbyte cloud.


Post Office Protocol (POP) is a client access protocol like IMAP, but older and less preferred than IMAP.

POP3 is also available in popular email clients like Thunderbird, Outlook, iPhone / Android mail, etc.

Email software that uses this protocol normally connects to the email server, downloads the email messages and then deletes them from the server.

Thus, unless all your devices are specifically configured to leave the email messages on the server, this protocol is not recommended if you require access to your emails from multiple devices or locations.
