I recently purchased an HTC desire phone and i am planning to check my emails via the phone. and in that i get an option asking if i am going to use a pop3 or an imap.
I did read through the internet for the differences between them.
But my only question is that i need a protocol POP3 or IMAP that will not delete my emails from the mail server.
Because years ago i tried using outlook and at that time i didnt know the difference between pop3 and imap, and due to that i lost all my emails from my yahoo mail server, which was a big loss to me, and the harddrive crashed, so i just want to make sure that i want to check my mails from the phone, but also make sure that the protocol does not delete my mails from the mail server.
because i want to check my email around the world from diffenet devices, and make sure that all my mails are stored centrally rather than in a single device which will make it very difficult.
