Pop accounts cannot just change into Imap account on their own. An account which states it's 'Server Type' is POP Mail Account, but has had only it's other server settings incorrectly changed to imap server settings eg: server name , port...can have its settings reverted. An account which has 'Server Type' as 'Imap Mail Account' and is using imap server settings cannot be changed into a Pop account. If you do not want Imap, then the account would need to be removed and completely recreated as a new > existing mail account set up as a Pop account.

What do you see in this location:

  • Right click on account name folder in folder pane and select 'Settings'
  • Select 'Server Settings'
  • Top right what does it say in 'Server Type:' Pop Mail Server or Imap Mail Server ?
