IMAP is an Internet protocol that allows a client to access e-mail on a remote mail server and supports both on-line and off-line modes of operation. E-mail clients using IMAP generally leave messages on the server until the user explicitly deletes them. This allows multiple email clients to manage the same mailbox. Most email clients support the Internet standard protocols SMTP for sending email and IMAP for retrieving email.
