IMAP vs POP3 - What's the difference between IMAP and POP3?

IMAP - the Internet Message Access Protocol - allows you to setup folders, reply to messages, and do all of your work the same way as you do now, except all of the information stays on the server. This lets you access and synchronize your information across multiple computers (and multiple operating systems) without losing the data.

POP3 - the Post Office Protocol 3 - allows you to access the same information on your account, but once you download it the information must be stored locally, because the data does not stay on the server.

IMAP or POP3 - which one do you use?
