For configure mail Alice and using your account in a traditional mail client you can use the IMAP protocol (recommended) or the POP3 protocol. The protocol IMAP it is designed for use on multiple devices at the same time and synchronizes all messages, both incoming and outgoing, on the workstations used by the user (PC, smartphone, tablet, etc.). The protocol POP3 instead it is more dated and allows the use of your account on only one device at a time, in fact it automatically deletes all messages that are downloaded to the computer from the remote server (except for external backup functions). Having clarified this important difference between the two protocols, here are the "coordinates" to use them both in Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Apple Mail and any other traditional mail client.
