IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) has been designed for accessing e-mail messages directly on a mail server. It allows your e-mail client to remotely access the message store as if it was local. Using IMAP, you are able to manipulate your messages from a desktop computer at home, a workstation at the office, and a notebook computer while travelling, without the need to transfer messages or files back and forth between these computers.
Note: Authentication works the same for IMAP as for POP3.
Root folder - set the path to the root folder on your IMAP server. If left empty the default set up by your server's administrator is used.
Pre-defined folders give you the flexibility to change the default folders for Outbox, Sent mail and Trash. To set up a predefined folder, check the one you want to change and enter the full path to the new folder, e,g, Inbox/Temp for Outbox.
Beware: Don't use a slash "/" at the end of the path!

Example: When you have a fast (DSL) connection it sets the refresh setting to once a minute. For a slow connection it allows you to not refresh at all until invoked manually.
