Differences between POP3, IMAP, SMTP and HTTP


First we need to know what the individual abbreviations exactly mean, in order to understand how our E-Mail-accounts work:

POP3: Post Office Protocol Version 3. POP3 is an ASCII transfer protocol that uses commands by default and sends them to port 110. POP3 requires no persistent connection to the mail server. The connection to the server is built and terminated via the client.

IMAP: Internet Message Access Protocol. IMAP is an application log, which allows the access to E-Mails located in a mailbox on the mail server. IMAP also manages received mail. Therefore, IMAP uses port 143.

SMTP: Simple Mail Transfer Protocol. SMTP is a protocol of the datagram of Protocol for exchanging E-Mail messages in computer networks. The SMTP server uses the ports 25 and 587 to connect to the mail server.

HTTP: Hypertext Transfer Protocol. HTTP is a protocol for transferring data via a network. It is primarily used to load Web sites from the World Wide Web into a Web browser. HTTP uses port 80.

Differences between POP3, IMAP and HTTP

To better understand how your mail account works, we now want to different transfer methods and protocols from each other.

The POP3 protocol picks your messages from an E-Mail Server up. You can decide whether to save or delete the messages on the server.

Usually the SMTP Protocol is in charge of sending E-mails.
This includes not only the sending of messages from the E mail client of the user to the server of the provider, but also the forwarding of messages from server to server within the Internet or corporate network. Like POP3, SMTP is a text-based protocol.

IMAP leaves the files (mails) on the mail server of the provider, until the client deletes them for good. The file must not be saved by the user itself, because the provider is responsible for the backup of the data. You can access your messages from each computer. When you log on by the E mail server, the existing data gets adjusted with those on your computer. While reading, writing and answering messages, a connection to the E-Mail Server must be established.

HTTP is a web based E-Mail service. If you have such an E-Mail provider account, you need a Web browser to access your E-Mails and retrieve them.
HTTP is applied in the graphical portion of the Internet, the World Wide Web. Web-based E-Mail providers often offer the possibility to collect E-Mail messages via POP3 or IMAP.

Setting Up Your Work Outlook Account

If your company uses Exchange Server, you can set up your work Outlook account on your phone so you can sync with your work email, calendar, contacts, and tasks wirelessly over the Internet. You can only have one work Outlook account on your phone at a time.

Your company must be using Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2) or later. Before setting up Outlook on your phone, obtain the domain and server name from your system administrator, and find out whether a secure connection (SSL) is required.

On the Home screen, slide to the Mail tab.

If this is your first time to set up an email account on your phone, tap New Account. Otherwise, tap Menu > Accounts > New Account.

On the subsequent screen, tap Microsoft Exchange.
Enter your email address (for example, and your password.
Tap Next.

If you are asked to enter domain and server details, do so and then tap Next.

On the Synchronize Data screen, clear the check boxes of any information types you do not want to sync with the Exchange Server. For example, if you only want to keep personal tasks on your phone, not your work tasks, then clear the Tasks check box.
Tap Done. Your phone then syncs the chosen information types with the Exchange Server.

If you want to change any settings for your work Outlook account, tap Start > ActiveSync > Menu, and select from the available options.

Removing Saved Credentials from Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7

Have you ever tried accessing a network device or resource only to find that last time you accessed that resource, you used a username and password that no longer works, or does not have the proper access.

This usually happens when you use credentials other than yours to access a resource on your network, or to access a resource on someone else's network, and you check the "Remember my password" check box.

Ok, so you want to remove that password, but how. Simple, just follow these simple instructions to see all the passwords you've cached on your machine:

To removed cached credentials

1. Click Start and select Run
2. In the Open field type "rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr"
3. Once the Stored Usernames and Passwords interface opens you can select any of the entries and select Properties to view the existing information
4. To remove a saved password you can select one of the entries and select Remove. A confirmation screen will appear. Click on OK and the account will be removed
5. You can add additional saved passwords as well by clicking on the Add button and entering the appropriate information
6. Repeat the steps above as needed to add, remove or edit saved passwords
7. When you are done using the interface click the Close button

That's all there is to it. This is a great way to see if, while working on a machine, you've accidentally saved your credentials, as any username/password combinations in this list will survive a reboot, and still be available.
