    I am migrating my data to another Windows 7 computer running Office 2010. I have a large gmail account, containing over 50,000 emails. I want to keep my old emails for research/tracking purposes. I am wondering what you recommend I use, POP3 or IMAP? I currently use POP3 on my older desktop but see that Outlook will automatically set up your account using IMAP. What are the advantages to this?

    Thanks!
