IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is a method of accessing and storing mail on a mail server. Unlike POP, IMAP allows you to access, organize, read and sort your email messages without having to download them first.
As a result, IMAP is. Explain the purpose of correctly receiving, checking and sorting mail and packages (both incoming and outgoing).
The purpose of correctly receiving, checking and sorting mail is to allow the smooth run of a business and keep up with the speed of operations needed within the business.
