Note: Using both IMAP and POP simultaneously or using POP across multiple devices can cause error messages when trying to send, receive or access new email such as the following: "The mail server denied access to your account because another mail client was using it." To avoid these errors, we recommend using IMAP on all devices. Learn more about switching from POP to IMAP.
