POP3 and IMAP are two different protocols (methods) used to access email.
Of the two, IMAP is the recommended option when you need to check your emails from multiple devices, such as a work laptop, a PC, a tablet, smartphone, or other mobile device. IMAP will sync the account across all devices to ensure that you do not miss anything. When creating new folders to manage your mailbox accordingly on one device, it will reflect on the others once they have been synced (updated).
