    The exchange of information between mail client and mail server takes place with the help of four protocols, and these are: >> IMAP (Internet message access protocol): It is a client-server protocol, which helps in building up the connection between an email and the local server. It works well even when the internet connection is slow. >> POP3 (Post office protocol 3): This protocol helps in downloading all the email messages from the mail server to your computer. >> SMTP (Simple mail transfer protocol): It's a simple protocol, which acts as a mail transfer protocol and it helps in sending a message from the sender to the recipient. >> HTTP (Hypertext transfer protocol): It is also known as the web based protocol which is used in accessing the mailbox. It also helps in retrieving all the email messages.
