IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is a way to download you redbrick email to a desktop client. You can use this to view your emails in your desktop client or to create your own backup of your email.
Although you can view you email we currently do not offer a SMTP mail server which would allow you to send email from your desktop client. Because of this it is only useful to a limited number of users and does not replace Webmail, mutt or DCU Apps to manage your redbrick email.
