That's where we have different requirements. My first priority is
speed, both in access (email clients tend to be slow), and in delivery
time. I really need emails to be delivered to my PC instantly, and
that's not the case with POP3 and IMAP. Even push mail to my Android
smartphone with original Gmail app is faster than POP or IMAP.
