Email Settings

Each email box can store a max of 3GB if you’re using IMAP – but if you add the IMAP account to your phone and computer, they’ll stay in sync (ie, read messages, new mail etc). If you’re using POP3, it downloads the messages permanently to your computer and nowhere else (first to fetch gets the message).
