Which protocol enables mail to be downloaded from an email server to a client and then deletes the email from the server?
Answers Explanation & Hints:
- With POP, mail is downloaded from the server to the client and then deleted on the server.
- SMTP is used for sending or forwarding email.
- Unlike POP, when a user connects via IMAP, copies of the messages are downloaded to the client application and the original messages are kept on the server until manually deleted.
- HTTP is used for web traffic data and is considered insecure.
