If you are using more than one device to work with e-mail, Pop isn't a good system, at least in a lot of cases.  If you have a crashing problem with your e-mail program, crashes may corrupt messages you download with a POP3 account.  But if your e-mail program is reliable and you are using only one device for mail, I don't see any meaningful advantage to IMAP unless you want a permanent collection of all your received messages off site.  I would imagine your sent messages are permanently kept as well.

What is unwise about using POP these days?
