Why wouldn't they?  The only issue might be if a "user" logged in via imap
and downloaded the list of headers, then the same "user" logged in via pop
and downloaded all unread messages, not leaving copies on the server, and
then the same "user" tried to read one of those messages via imap....they'll
get a message that the message no longer exists (how that's phrased is a
client-side issue).

I run both imap and pop on my server, but generally discourage people from
using pop if they can possibly run an imap client.
