Limitation of email data migration via POP3 v/s IMAP protocol

There are few things you need to remember when doing mail data migration over POP3 as compered with IMAP they are as follows:

Via pop3, all mails will be downloaded so its better to either move the inbox data to any other folder or otherwise some emails can be duplicate ones.

Pop3 don't sync the date so all mail and their data remains as it is but the date is set to today's date only on which the email was downloaded from old server pop3 host.

Pop3 only sync inbox data as that is limitation of Pop3 protocol.

So please and verify all with customer and let us know once we can start downloading this user's inbox data using pop3 protocol.
