Re: [Evolution] Errors receiving mail via POP

But, to inject a bit of controversy into this, is the usage of the very
old POP protocol sufficient that the devs should spend time looking at
this sort of issue?


  Why do people still use POP, when IMAP is a more
complete solution and things like offline-imap and fetchmail exist for
those who work in an offline environment?

They use POP because they do not want their mail residing on someone
else's computer.

I know it passes through other systems, but I have some messages that
reside for long periods of time in various email folders for various
reasons.  And, I feel a lot more secure doing so.

If I lose my phone, or my iPad, or my laptop, I don't need to worry
about my email accounts.

Besides, 90 percent of the problems I see here have to do with IMAP.
I've been using POP for years and years and have very, very little
trouble.  So, count me among the POP fans.
