What is POP and IMAP?
These are the standard Internet protocols for accessing email.
- POP leaves messages on the server, download them to your computer, and manage them in Opera Mail.
- IMAP allows you to manage email directly on the server. Since the emails are still on the server, they can be accessed from another online connection, or offline if you have downloaded the message body.
Opera Mail uses the following protocols: POP3, IMAP, (E) SMTP, RSS (RDF Site Summary and Really Simple Syndication), Atom, and NNTP.
Non-standard server port
The default ports used are 143 for IMAP, 110 for POP, and 119 for NNTP. If your ISP uses a non-standard server port, you can enter it after the server name in the form “servername: port“, such as “pop.example.com:111“.
Secure connection (TLS)
TLS allows for highly secure encrypted communication between mail clients, such as Opera Mail, and a server. Encrypted communication allows you to send passwords and other important data over the Internet without fear of being followed by others. Opera Mail supports TLS, but your ISP must support a secure TLS connection to use this feature.
