Support Ticket Piping – POP vs IMAP



Because my email server is hosted on a different server than Blesta I have to setup remote email piping. I will of course use SSL, but I’m trying to decide if I choose POP vs IMAP.

From my understanding IMAP is a modern protocol and has the advantage of keeping all emails stored on the email server. Using POP emails after piping would be deleted from the email server. This can be a bad thing in terms of wanting to keep multiple copies of the emails, but can be an advantage in terms of security because a hacker with access to the email server will not have access to the emails.

What do you think? What are you using?

Would really appreciate any advise. Thanks!
