IMAP
IMAP is an acronym for Internet Message Access Protocol, and is a standard protocol for accessing e-mail or bulletin board from our local server. In other words, it permits a "client" email program to access remote message stores as if they were local. For example, email stored on an IMAP server can be manipulated from a desktop computer at home, a workstation at the office, and a notebook computer while traveling, without the need to transfer messages or files back and forth between these computers.

IMAP is a client/server protocol in which e-mail is received and held for you by your Internet server. You can view just the heading and the sender of the mail and then decide whether to download the mail. You can also create and manipulate folders or mailboxes on the server, delete messages, etc. Every web hosting account on Renderhosting offers IMAP support.
