What are POP3 and IMAP?
POP3 and IMAP are both email protocols that allow you to receive emails from programs such as Outlook and Thunderbird. POP3 downloads copies of emails to any application with which you access the mailbox. POP3 is more suitable for saving web server space. IMAP synchronizes your mailbox with all the applications with which you access it.

How does an SSL connection work?
An SSL connection creates secure communication between the website and the visitor's browser. Ensures that all data passed between the two is kept confidential, such as credit card numbers, names and addresses. URLs visited via an SSL link start with "https" and have a key image in the address field.
