Choosing the account type: POP3 or IMAP 

Now choose between a POP3 or IMAP account. 

Using IMAP saves your e-mails on the server. Each time you read an e-mail, a copy is downloaded from the server. 

Using POP3 downloads and saves your e-mails to your smartphone. The messages are then deleted from the server. This way, you can also read your e-mails offline at any time, for example if you are on the train. 

If you are not certain choose IMAP.
