Re: Dum question

I use POP on a one (singular) of my devices, all others are IMAP. This allows me access to messages until I am ready to, quite intentionally, remove them from the server, download them, and then archive them using my own methods. Keeping email on IMAP servers, mistaking that for "storage", is a grave mistake and a potential privacy failure if/when your login is hacked.

Speaking of which, I guess it's about time for me to archive again...
