IMAP

IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is web protocol for remote access to a mailbox via the email client. IMAP allows you to use advanced options for the remote administration (working with folders and transferring of messages among them, searching on the server side, etc.) and work in online and offline mode. These functions are not supported by the older and simpler POP3 protocol.
