    IMAP is usually the better way to go. It can duplicate the folder structure of your webmail, and it doesn't have to physically download the emails locally--it accesses the emails in the cloud.

    that is why i got confused. exchange does the same as imap but don't know which one is better.

    Oh, I'm sorry--I didn't catch the exchange part in your question. I thought you were asking about IMAP vs POP3 only. This article might be helpful--it sounds like there isn't a huge difference between IMAP and exchange: Email: What’s the Difference Between POP3, IMAP, and Exchange?
