I'd would use IMAP if it were not that my ISP has a limit on the quantity of mail I can keep on their sever. When this limit is reached, the oldest e-mail is discarded (LIFO queue).

By the way, how are the names of the incoming and outgoing servers for IMAP formed? With POP, I put POP3.FIBERTEL.COM.AR and SMTP.FIBERTEL.COM.AR, where FIBERTEL.COM.AR is my ISP.
