Years ago if you had an email account and you want to download it to your computer, you would use POP to download you email to your Mac. This was all well and good, but then people decided to have more than one device, such as phones, tablets and other computers and wanted to have their email on said device. This presented a problem since POP was a download service, it meant that each device would have one copy of the email and they couldn’t talk to each other. The method of IMAP was developed and has steadily become more popular. This method allows you to manage your email on every device, and each device will update based on the changes made. Every device will have the same email copy. This post is going to tell you how to change your POP based email to IMAP on Mail. Although you could do this with any email client.
