IMAP vs POP3 vs MAPI
MAPI is a proprietary Microsoft protocol that allows the Microsoft Outlook email client to fully utilize all of the features of an Exchange server including email, shared address books, calendars and public folders. When Outlook is configured as a MAPI client, also known as an Exchange client, email is stored in the cloud on a secure mail server with a copy on your computer. Messages retained in the cloud are accessible via webmail from any internet connected computer. MAPI, coupled with ActiveSync, is the most secured and proven connection method for home or business email.
POP is the most common Internet standard for receiving email. When a POP email client retrieves messages, the messages are downloaded from the mail server in the cloud onto your computer. The messages are normally deleted from the cloud, although you can configure your email client to not delete downloaded messages for a short period — for example, a few days. POP offers the least functionality as it is an e-mail only protocol. Items such as contacts, appointments or tasks cannot be managed or accessed using POP.
IMAP is a common Internet standard for retrieving email. When an IMAP email client retrieves messages, it downloads a copy of messages from the cloud to your computer but leaves a copy in the cloud as well. The email client periodically synchronizes your mailbox between the cloud and the email client. When a message is deleted from the mailbox on the email client, it will be deleted from the cloud the next time the two are synchronized. IMAP offers limited functionality as it is an email only protocol. Items such as contacts, appointments and tasks cannot be managed or accessed using IMAP.
