Assuming default setup of the email clients. There are always users like 
me who turn it off and have the client keep a copy on the remote server. 
Then use multiple machines to access mail. IMAP on the other hand can be 
setup to have the user download the messages and delete them off the 
server just like a default POP3. IMAP and POP3 are tuned to different 
scenarios and the defaults in the mail clients are opposite. However, 
the end client can change that behavior.
