IMAP just like POP3 settings

Hello,

I have question about Email Essentials.

(Professional Email + Advanced Email Security with encryption).

https://uk.godaddy.com/email/secure-email

 

I want to set up IMAP email just like my POP3 email.
I want that IMAP email do not leave a copy of email messages

(received or sending email) on the server after I downloading/sending

email from my Outlook 2016.

Please tell me is it possible to set-up IMAP email just like POP3 ?

 

Thank Mia

The short answer is No....

 

IMAP is by nature an "access protocol" in which the messages reside on the server and your computer / device is accessing them.  I actually recommend to clients to use IMAP as that way 1) you can keep your devices in sync and 2) if something should ever happen to  your computer the email is all stored on the server.
