Question Question on Imap and Pop3

Hi everyone,

Could someone tell me or show me where I could find directions to convert Imap account to Pop3 account on Sendmail server? Both Imap and Pop3 are up and running.

Both POP and IMAP will able to get mail from the Inbox, but only IMAP can read mail in other folders/repositories. Also watch that you use the 'leave mail on server' in your POP3 client, otherwise the next time you login via IMAP your Inbox will be empty.
