Google App Business Email Settings
 
Did you just migrated to Google App for business and has no idea what email settings to use? Here the page to answer your question.

Basic History of Email settings

There are basically 2 type of protocol. POP or IMAP, that we can configure after migrating to google mail. Both of the protocols allow you to download mail into your device, such as PC or mobile phone, from the email server.

In the following text, device / devices will refer to your PC, smartphone, tablet, etc

 

Difference between IMAP and POP

POP will be a one way communication from the email server, aka download, to your device.

- Mails downloaded will stay in your device inbox, and depends on settings, might be deleted from your mail server's inbox. If you created additional folders in your device to sort the mails, they will not be reflected in the email server.

- Mail sent from your device, will only stay in your device's sent folder, but not the email server's sent folder.

- Items deleted from the device's mail folder will not be reflected in the mail server

Hence if you have multiple devices and they are set to receive email using POP, there might be lost message from inbox and sent message from one device might not be reflected across the rest of the devices.

IMAP will be a 2 way communication, aka sync, between email server and your device.

- Mails download will stay in your device inbox and server's inbox. If you created additional folders in inbox to sort your mail, the new arrangement will be reflected in the email server as well.

- Mail sent from your device will be in the sent folder of the email server as well.

- Items deleted from your device will be deleted from the mail server as well.

This is suitable if you have mulitple devices and wish to ensure that your inbox and sent folders are always updated.

The only disadvantage of IMAP is that if you accidentally delete some mails, they will be deleted across all your devices as well.
