Thank you, Bill.

I actually wasn't asking for a definition of IMAP (or POP3).

In my experience, all (free) GMail accounts are the same. Apparently, you choose to call your new one a "GMail IMAP" account because you access it with an IMAP client.

By the way, like most Google offerings, GMail's IMAP servers are not fully standards compliant, but work more or less O.K. depending on the IMAP client.

Google Voice just converted to VoIP, but, again, its VoIP version of not fully standards compliant either.

Google, like Microsoft before it, doesn't seem to be bothered by not complying with standards.
