IMAP server for email. IMAP and POP3 are the two primary methods / protocols for making email on an email server accessible to an email client.

The most striking difference is that POP3 downloads the emails from the server (and typically deletes them), while IMAP leaves them on the server, thus letting you read them from clients on multiple machines.
