POP is meant to download mail to a local MAIL service from a collection point.
IMAP is meant to access a remote MAIL store. so convert to IMAP is the right answer to this question.
You need to check whether there is any emails which are in your iPad only and not on the server.

You need to setup the same email account in a computer to download all emails first for a backup as you will not lose any data when you play around the email account in your iPad.
Its the correct answer.
