We changed Email providers and the new provider has Imap server instead of POP. all our users Outlook settings were set up for Pop accounts. Since the type account is the only thing I am unable to change in the account settings, does it matter, if I just leave it as a pop account type and just enter in the imap incoming server name?

Thanks.

POP and IMAP use different ports. For this reason (and others too - but this one is already enough) it isn't possible to simply change the server's address to make it work.

But outlook has a place to change ports for incoming and outgoing.

OK. Even if you change the server's address and the port used, you are still instructing Outlook it's a POP account when in reality it became an IMAP account.
POP and IMAP are different protocols and as a result they use different commands when connected to the (mail) server.
