What's the difference between Imap and pop3?

James Bentley

Hi everyone,
I am moving from Yahoo/ATT mail to Gmail.  I planned on setting up a pop3 account because that is what I am accustomed to using.   However, I don’t seem to have that option.  So, what will be different if I set up an Imap account?
Many thanks,
James Bentley
