IMAP or POP3

When connecting to a virgin media e-mail account, is it IMAP or POP, that is used for receiving mail? I seem to receive errors in either case.

 

Thanks

Re: IMAP or POP3

Depends how you want to check your email account:

Read this and select your email address after the '@' to get the settings ...

Re: IMAP or POP3

If you access the account on multiple devices then imap is the best - whatever you do on one device (read mails, delete etc) are reflected on your other devices, pop is ok for one device although emails deleted from an email client are sometimes not deleted from webmail but are held for 30 days before being deleted, All modern email clients prefer imap over pop these days.
