Over the years I've used one then the other. Not sure which is the correct one. The IMAP smpt server tends to 'time out' periodically, but if I set everything to pop my old emails dont seem to get deleted even though I set the advanced settings to delete after one day etc. I have also downloaded the automatic setup for my iPad (which strangely uses both POP and IMAP settings). Currently using the following. Please advise re: what is the best.
IMAP Account information:
Incoming mail server:
Host name: mail.optusnet.com.au
Outgoing mail server:
SMTP: mail.optusnet.com.au (SSL selected, Server port 25, all other entries blank)
Drafts mailbox: Drafts
Sent mailbox: Sent messages
Deleted mailbox: Deleted messages
Move discarded messages into:
Deleted mailbox: tick
Remove: after one day
SSL unchecked (not used)
IMAP Path prefix / blank
Server port: 143
Imap is not supported by Optus and I think IOS tries to set this method up by default. When you set your mail to delete after a certain amount of days it is actually the mail server where the mail is deleted from not your phone.
