Authentication is required for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.
If you are using IMAP, it is best to find the setting for the IMAP prefix and set it to "INBOX" -- no quotation.
Still deciding between IMAP or POP? Here is a quick description of the two types of connections:
- IMAP email access coordinates between the server and your mail application. Messages that have been read/deleted/replied to will show up as such, both on the server and in the mail application.
- POP3 does not coordinate with the server. Messages marked as read/deleted/replied to in the mail application will not show up as such on the server. This means that future mail downloads with POP3 will show all messages as unread.
- Outgoing mail is sent using SMTP.
