I'm a student, but I've received an Office 365 account. How do I switch back?Once your email has been switched to an Office365 account there isn't a way to revert it to gMAV. However, you can still access the non email functions of Google.
Should I use POP or IMAP when setting up my email?
- POP is a basic email protocol. It goes out to the server, grabs all of the email, downloads it and then typically deletes the email from the server. Once it has done that, the only place you can access the email from is the computer you downloaded it to. POP is good to use if you want to store all of your email on a single computer. Do not use POP if you access your email from multiple locations/devices.
- IMAP is a more advanced email protocol. It goes out to the server and downloads the email, but doesn't delete them from the server. IMAP is useful if you access your email from multiple locations or devices.
