Well imho, used imap instead of pop.
It leaves all the messages of your mail-server, instead of copying to your
mail client.

I agree, imap is the way to go, especially if you get mail on multiple

NOTE: with T-bird 3.X you have to configure it NOT to (1) 'sync' your imap
folders and NOT (2) 'store messages on local computer'. Otherwise tbird 3 will
behave like pop set to leave messages on server.

I do not quite understand: You read the messages on the server with
imap, and they stay there, until i remotely delete them?
pop3 you can choose to leave the messages on the server, or when you
change these the will be deleted on the server, but stay resistant
residing somwhere unseen in TB.
What is the real advantage(s) in imap above pop3?
