Should I use IMAP or POP3?

If you set up your Rackspace email account using POP3, your emails will be downloaded and stored on your device. This means that you can access your emails even when you're offline. You also save disk space and do not run out of storage capacity on your Rackspace email account as easily compared to IMAP.

In case you use multiple devices to access your Rackspace email account, you'll only be able to access your emails on the device where downloaded them. So if you wish to read your emails on multiple devices, IMAP is the better option. You could, of course, use POP3 and configure your email address in a way that a copy of your emails is left on the Rackspace server. This allows you to combine the advantages of POP3 and IMAP, but results in the disadvantage of not saving storage capacity when using POP3.
