Select IMAP or POP3
On the next screen you will need to choose whether you wish to configure a IMAP or POP3.

We recommend IMAP because it will keep your email on the server and allow you to use multiple devices to access your email. POP3 downloads your email to your device and delete it from the server, making it unavailable to other devices.
