Migrating away from Godaddy online email account How to get emails in subfolders? tigertom msg:4181928 4:50 pm on Aug 4, 2010 (gmt 0) I have an associate who has thousands of emails in sub-folders in his Godaddy email account. POP access seems to only allow you to download from the 'root' folder. Is there any way to download emails in subfolders, apart from shoving them in the root folder?

IMAP should do the trick. It is a more versatile end-user email protocol than POP3 and is as far as I know supported by GoDaddy. Also most of the Windows based email clients I know of support IMAP. tigertom msg:4182327 9:02 am on Aug 5, 2010 (gmt 0)
I thought it might. But there doesn't seem to be an option to 'leave messages on server' in the IMAP setup, in Outlook(?) tigertom msg:4182344 10:09 am on Aug 5, 2010 (gmt 0)
Durr ... does IMAP by default leave messages on server? lammert msg:4182371 11:21 am on Aug 5, 2010 (gmt 0)
IMAP is a client server type of protocol where emails can stay on the server and are only transferred to the client when needed, or where emails can be downloaded to the client and deleted from the server afterwards. It can also copy, move and delete messages directly on the server side with commands issued from the client. It all depends on the functionality which has been implemented in the client application. tigertom msg:4182376 11:31 am on Aug 5, 2010 (gmt 0)
Thank you. I think I understand, now.
