IMAP will let you access an Inbox and sent messages. All messages and
folders are on the server and your computer.
Pop will download all message to your computer. A copy of Inbox messages
can be left on the server.
In WLMail, Tools, Accounts, highlight an account, Properties, Advanced,
Accessing your IMAP account online, you will see all messages.
Accessing your pop account online, you will see new messages, copies left on
server, messages sent while online. You will not see messages from your
computers' Sent Items.
