Abstract

At first glance, the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) resembles the POP protocol described in  Chapter 14. Plus, if you read the first sections of  Chapter 13, which provide the entire picture of how e-mail travels across the Internet, you will already know that the two protocols fill a quite similar role: POP and IMAP are two ways that a laptop or desktop computer can connect to a remote Internet server to view and manipulate a user’s e-mail.
