moderated Re: Outlook, .pop vs imap account


I don't think a personal (free) outlook account can be a POP (unless
they (MS) have changed their minds), but if you pay for it, you can
choose. also the use of ", and" is an
alias for an account.

Yes, I am thinking very seriously of changing from Gmail to Hotmail or
outlook as it is now known.

As I only use one device, a desktop, to read my mail, does Outlook offer
a pop3 account?

Gmail actually does not send copies of these emails to different
accounts. Gmail uses labels and not really mailboxes so oe message can
have labels which makes it belong to multiple “mailboxes”. As I said
before, gmail and I never saw eye to eye and I have always preferred
Hotmail or,, as it is now known. is a very good
and advanced service and I highly recommend it.

After changing to a new computer a few weeks ago, I was unable to get my
old gmail account under pop3 using Outlook 2013 to work and was forced
to change to imap.  The newly installed Outlook would not allow me to
setup a Gmail pop3 account.

I am anything but pleased with the result because I am being flooded
with duplicate mail.

The mail is downloaded into the inbox as you would expect  but a copy of
many of the messages is sent to another box called “important”. I have
to go through this list as well because sometimes this box receives
messages which are not sent to the inbox. This means manually removeing
messages from both boxes.

Just today, another gmail account, which has nothing to do with this
one, received messages from this list but they  had a 2017 date and they
were sent to the “important” box of that account.

Does anyone know of another provider which has free email accounts like
gmail  which allows pop3 accounts. There is Hotmail of course but have
never used it.

Same thing here with IMAP. I still use it, though, because I have two
computers, and I wouldn’t be able to see the same messages on both
computers if I used POP.

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?
