POP3 or IMAP: What should I use for my Afrihost email?

With IMAP, any changes made to your emails (reading, deleting…) are synchronized across all devices you use to access your email. On the other hand, POP reflects changes only on the device where you initially downloaded the messages. Consider your needs and preferences to determine which protocol suits you best when adding your Afrihost email settings to your clients.

In general, it's advisable to choose IMAP over POP as it allows you to access the same emails on multiple devices.If you prioritize storage conservation for a large mailbox, POP is the preferable option. With POP, emails are downloaded to your device, freeing up storage space in your mailbox.
