Choosing the account type: POP3 or IMAP

Now choose between a POP3 or IMAP account.

IMAP
Using IMAP saves your E-Mails on the server. Each time you read an E-Mail, a copy is downloaded from the server.
POP3
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.
