JAWS 16.0.4350 is compatible with Windows 10, but it will not be as compatible as later versions, especially with the Anniversary update.

Re: What's the difference between Imap and pop3?

James Bentley
 

OK, I have decided that I like the idea that all clients will be synchronized  when using imap.  But, I have a few very important questions.  I wonder if using imap will allow me to download all messages to any client and keep them there forever if I choose.  In other words, I do not want emails only available to me when I am on line.  I want to download emails and keep them forever if I want.  Will imap allow me to have the emails on all of my computers without deleting them after a certain period of time?  And, I do understand that if I make changes to one client, the same changes happen to all.  But, I was just under the impression that users of imap do not get to keep emails on their machines forever.
 
Thanks for any advice,
 
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,

MP3 for example.
5. Tab a few more times and you will find a button that is not properly

This is a browse button. You can use it to select the folder where
files will be downloaded. By default, it will save files in the
"My Videos"
folder.
"My Videos"
is only the virtual name for this folder. The actual path to this
folder is
C:\Users\UserName\Videos
In either case, you can use the button labeled
"..."
to change it. It will remember the folder you selected between sessions
and continue to use that folder until you change it again.
6. Tab once more and you will find a button labeled either
"Download"
or
"Download and convert"
depending on whether you chose to just download or convert the file in
the previous steps. Select this button and it will begin downloading
and possibly converting the file.

I suppose at that point you have to decide if using Outlook Express is worth sacrificing improvements in JAWS 17.  If you are running Windows 10, especially the Anniversary update, it may not be worth the inconvenience.

Re: What's the difference between Imap and pop3?

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 


Hi James,
 
Below are a couple of explanations:
From: Jason White
With IMAP, the messages are stored on the server. Changes you make, e.g.,
moving and deleting messages, marking messages as read or replied to, etc.,
take place on the server as well. (A local copy may be kept on your disk, but
the copy on the server is primary.)
 
The main advantage is that you can access the same mail folders from different
devices, and, since everything is kept up to date on the server, whenever you
access your mail over IMAP, you are effectively reading and modifying a single
copy that is stored remotely.
 
On the other hand, POP 3 downloads your mail to the local computer. It doesn't
maintain the mail folders on the server and update them as IMAP does.
 
POP 3 is very much obsolete technology at this point.
 
Since everything is handled by your mail client software, there will be no
difference so far as JAWS or any other screen reader is concerned; but you'll
have a better experience with IMAP, especially if you have multiple
computers/devices with which you read mail.
 
The best strategy in that case is to store the message on a server that has
plenty of capacity, and access them using IMAP from all of your devices.
Jason
 
From: Gene
Outlook Express doesn't support message rules using IMAP.  Neither does Windows Live Mail and, presumably, neither does Windows Mail.  I don't know if Thunderbird supports message rules with IMAP.  Microsoft Outlook does.
 
Gene
 
    Difference Between POP3 and IMAP E-mail Accounts
 
IMAP and POP3 are methods used by your computer to access e-mail messages from a remote server. 1&1 e-mail accounts are compatible with both IMAP and POP3.
1&1 suggests using IMAP over POP3. Read on to find out why.
 
IMAP
 
IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is an advanced protocol for receiving e-mail. It is a method of accessing e-mail messages which are stored on a
mail server.
 
The main advantage of IMAP over POP3 is the ability to keep the original e-mail stored on the mail server and the ability to access the same account from
multiple locations. Unlike POP3 where e-mail is downloaded to the computer or device checking for mail and completely removed from the mail server, IMAP
simply downloads a copy of the e-mail. This is much more convenient as the e-mail account can be set up on multiple computers and devices using IMAP and
the original e-mail will always remain on the mail server.
 
In cases where a mobile phone or personal computer was configured to be the primary means of checking e-mail and malfunctions, is lost, stolen, or totally
inoperable, the e-mails will not be lost. Set up the account using IMAP on another computer, device or simply check the 1&1 Webmail at
 
 
 and find that all e-mails are still intact!
 
POP3
 
POP3 stands for Post Office Protocol version 3. When an e-mail is sent to your address, it is stored on the mail server until it is downloaded via your
e-mail client (Outlook, Netscape mail, your mobile, etc.) using POP3. After the e-mail has been downloaded to your client, it is removed from the server
altogether.
 
Simply, this means if one were to set up an e-mail account on a mobile phone as POP3, the phone would download all e-mails, removing them from the server.
If one were to then check the webmail or home computer for the same e-mail account, there would be no mails viewable as they have already been download
by the mobile phone.
 
For additional information, you may want to reference:

Take care.

Re: problem with jaws and outlook express

Whether you have them or not, core support for them has been removed so without effort on behalf of someone who has a good knowledge of JAWS scripting, they will not work.  Windows Live Mail may be your best alternative since it is a direct descendent of Outlook Express and Windows Mail.

I can't answer your question about IMAP and POP 3, other than to tell you that I had POP 3 with Outlook Express, and now that I have Outlook 2013, I have IMAP, and I can't tell the difference. I can tell the difference in Outlook and Outlook Express, but otherwise, I have no idea. It makes sense to somebody, so maybe your question will bring an answer that better informs me too,.

Bye for now,

Subject: [TechTalk] What's the difference between Imap and pop3?

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
