IMAP is different in that it normally works in real-time on the
server, without downloading the messages (technically of course it has
to download them), so all the messages and folders are actually stored
on the server and not the client. This means the mail folders would
not be on the PDA and you would need to be connected to the server in
order to read and reply to the email. With pop3 you can download in a
batch, go offline, reply to emails and then upload the replies in a
batch. It's probably the better way to do it for a mobile device like
a PDA.
