Which email protocol to use to set up Telus on Windows Live Mail

The main difference between POP and IMAP is the way the email account is kept synchronized across two or more computers (including the remote Telus server). IMAP will let you maintain the same set of email messages on multiple machines. POP, on the other hand, is good for downloading messages but won’t be of much help in synching accounts even if you set it to leave a copy of the messages on the server.
