moderated Outlook, .pop vs imp account


paul lemm
 

Hi,

 

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?

Good point, Paul. I'm changing my server from Centurylink.net 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.

This is indeed true, but for a great many of us we're using e-mail from Gmail or the like, which is set up for it.  If you're having problems in that situation it's typically either something on your end (your computer) or with your internet service provider rather than the e-mail service provider itself that's "choking" throughput or in some other way causing issues with maintaining the connection between you and the e-mail server.  This generally only matters during "mass operations" where you'd be dealing with potentially thousands of messages at a time.  Doing a send/receive for your latest incoming/outgoing should certainly not be problematic for the e-mail service provider at the very least.

I once had a Verizon.net email account. Yeah... Not doing that again. I stay
away from ISP emails. Too much of a hassle if ever you should or need to
switch providers.
That and what they offer usually sucks as far as available features and
support.
