Re: POP is unwise [was: Being Unsubscribed for Marking Messages as Spam #adminnotice]
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.

we'd be so simple that we couldn't.
