    It is an interface between you computer and the emails on the providers host
    computer. With the POP interface the emails are usually deleted from the
    host. With IMAP they are kept on the host. You need to delete them.

    IMAP makes it easy to have access to an identical view of all your email
    folders and messages from two or more computers.

    A protocol to access your email as if it were stored in folders on your
    own PC.
