What is IMAP?


IMAP is an email protocol that stores your email on a server, and keeps them there until you delete them. This means you can access your email account from any computer, and all your emails will be there. What you'll be learning in this tutorial is how to move old emails that you want to keep from the server to your local computer's hard drive. Those emails will no longer exist on the server, but you'll have local copies in case you ever need to reference them.
