SMTP

Protocol to sent e-mails from your own e-mail software (like Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail).

POP/POP3

Protocol to receive e-mails on your own e-mail software (like Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail).

POP is a protocol which downloads the e-mails on your own e-mail software. After downloading it the e-mail is deleted from the web version (server). The advantage of this protocol compared to IMAP is that it takes less storage on the server.

IMAP/IMAP4

Protocol to receive on your own e-mail software (like Outlook, Thunderbird, Apple Mail).

IMAP is a protocol which copy's the e-mails to your computer/laptop/mobile/tablet. This protocol does not delete the e-mail from the web version (server).

The disavantage of this protocol, in comparison with POP, is that it takes more disk space storage.
