hi

i've found on some sites that if i click on 'contact' i get a little box that says this.

you need to open an account, what type of account would you like to open?
POP
IMAP
news
import email
chat
Opera email

what does it all mean?
what does POP and IMAP stand for?
which one should i go for?

thanks.
