Good point, Paul. I'm changing my server from to Ncidata.
Century doesn't have a strong email support, I've been told. Their internet
is okay, but the email is something they offered as an afterthought.

The other thing that may impact the speed is who your email provider is,
since its taking and receiving the emails from their servers , so it may be
a problem using imap with that particular provider, do you know does your
provider support the imap type? For example I use sky which is designed for
pop emails, but I use imap , since I'm not using the email protocol sky
recommend I do sometimes get slow down or an error message, but the error
messages aren't frequent and the speed delay isn't enough to bother me, and
is definitely worth the trade-off to be using imap instead of pop

Subject: Outlook, .pop vs imap account

Hi: Up until recently, I've had a .pop account with my Outlook 2010. Per
recommendations from knowledgeable and trustworthy individuals, I've
switched over to imap. What I've noticed is that the action is a lot less
crisp and snappy than with my old .pop account. The advantage with imap is,
supposedly, that your messages, except for the absolute most recent ones,
reside on your server rather than taking up space on your hard drive, thus
older messages can be downloaded if you click on them. My interaction with
my .pop email account, deleting, moving, reading, used to be immediate. I
now experience a lot of sluggish delays, plus JAWS freezing, with my imap.
When I delete messages, same thing. I often have to sit there and wait for a
deletion to finish, and JAWS freezes. It often doesn't seem to matter
whether I delete one message or three conversations. What's the experience
of the rest of you?
