Sounds like you have a system to avoid the shortcomings of POP3. I only
have one computer and tend to avoid using anyone else's...
The average user is in trouble. It depends on how often one does backups.
If it's once per week then it's potentially a week of lost mail. With IMAP
there are always at least two live copies (local and server), plus whatever
backups you make.
You can download all of your email with a mail client over IMAP. If you
have two computers that you access your mail from, that gives you three
copies of your mail -- one on each computer and one on the server...
But use whatever works for you...
Hmm. Sorry, I did look in their help forum and found the term used -
but you are right they only use pop3 for REAL email.
You must want IMAP for webmail and you can access GoDaddy webmail
But - as I stated before, you should only be using webmail on a rare
occasion when you are away from home on someone else's computer (or, I
suppose, if you can only afford to buy one computer for all of your
employees to use). I use Mac Mail and I haven't seen any other email
programs that even come close - EVER.
