When you add a POP3 account, you can associate an existing folder (for example, your Mailbox folder) with the account or you can create a new folder. When you download e-mail from your POP3 account to GroupWise, it is typically deleted from the POP3 server. You can choose to have your POP3 account items stored on the POP3 server. If you store items on the server, you can read those items from more than one computer.

When you add an IMAP4 account, the folder you see in GroupWise represents the folder on your IMAP4 server. Your IMAP4 account items are always stored on the IMAP4 server. Any actions in the GroupWise folder, such as creating, or deleting, are performed on the IMAP4 server as well. Because your items are always stored on the IMAP4 server, you can read those items from more than one computer.
When you delete an item, it is marked for deletion on the IMAP4 server. To remove the item, you need to purge it. You can download only the subject (header) of an item, or you can download the entire item. You can move items from another folder into an IMAP4 folder, and the items are created on the IMAP4 server.
