Outlook Express (IMAP - POP)

CONVERT IMAP TO POP IN OUTLOOK EXPRESS

Helpful Hint!

Before you start you will need to have the password for your mail box which can be reset via your control panel if you do not know it! We keep your passwords encrypted for safety.

Customers should note when moving from IMAP-POP any mail stored in IMAP folders will not be accessible via your mail client when your POP account is setup. Any mail in IMAP folders will need copied into your inbox.
